OVTA Trainings

CASQA is sponsoring Trash Full Capture Equivalency and On-Land Visual Trash Assessment (OVTA) Trainings for municipalities and non-traditional MS4s as they prepare to meet the requirements of the Trash Amendments. Four 2-day trainings will be held in March and April throughout California (Southern California, Central Coast, Sacramento Area, and North Bay Area).

Module 1 / Day 1: Includes both a classroom and field component with a focus on the process of conducting OVTAs on streets/sidewalks and land areas such as parking lots. This module is tailored for staff managing the assessment program and/or conducting field assessments.
Module 2 / Day 2: A classroom training, focused on (1) using OVTA results to develop baseline trash generation maps, (2) designing, developing, and implementing an OVTA program, and (3) calculating load generations associated with full capture systems and other trash control actions.
