    Description: Ecology will be changing the process for submitting SEPA records to the SEPA register. Instead of emailing records to Ecology, lead agencies will use the new SEPA Record Submittal (SRS) portal to enter records and documents.  This training will walk you through the process of getting into the SRS portal and using it to enter your agency SEPA records. This is not a training about SEPA itself and will only cover the new lead agency portal.


    The target audience for this training is lead agencies. Additionally, the training will include 30 minutes of instruction and 25 minutes of Q&A. The training will be virtual and implemented through Zoom.



    Instructor: Fran Sant is a senior environmental planner for the Shorelands and Environmental Assistance Program at the Washington State Department of Ecology. She has been providing SEPA technical assistance and working on SEPA rulemaking since joining Ecology in 2012. Prior to joining Ecology Fran was with the Governor’s Office for Regulatory Assistance and Innovation.

    This training will demonstrate the WA Department of Fish and Wildlife’s standardized methods for conducting beach surveys and processing samples for surf smelt and Pacific sand lance spawn.  Specifically, this training is designed for biologists who require certification to conduct forage fish surveys for regulatory purposes to comply with conditions of a governing permit such as those issued by WDFW, DNR, or ACoE.


    The training will include a virtual classroom component with a presentation and demonstration of field methods and lab techniques, in addition to an in-person component to demonstrate and practice field collection and sample processing. At the conclusion of training, participants will have knowledge of forage fish survey method and reporting requirements, and will be added to the WDFW-managed list of individuals approved to conduct regulatory surveys.

     

    • Participants who will be taking this class for the first time and need to be certified on conducting a forage fish survey must attend the virtual sessions on 9/21 and 9/22 from 9:00 am - 11:30 am and must attend the in-person session on 9/23 from 8:30 am - 12:30 pm at Richmond Beach Saltwater Park in Shoreline (2021 NW 190th St, Shoreline, WA 98177). 
    • Participants who have taken this class in the past and need to be re-certified on conducting a forage fish survey must attend the virtual sessions on 9/21 and 9/22  from 9:00 am - 11:30 am. However, participants who are getting recertified can choose during the registration process whether or not they would like to attend the in-person session on 9/23 from 8:30 am - 12:30 pm at Richmond Beach Saltwater Park in Shoreline (2021 NW 190th St, Shoreline, WA 98177 ). It is highly encouraged that participants who are getting recertified participate in the in-person session on 9/23.

    During the field component, all participants will be expected to follow Washington Department of Ecology’s COVID-19 guidelines at the time of the training. You will likely be asked to complete a health survey 12 hours before the field component and wear a mask. Also, there will be access to a outdoor shelter, but please dress appropriately. (8 AICP CM Credits/CEP Points if you join on the field day and 5 AICP/CM Credits/CEP Points if you just attend the virtual sessions.)

     

    Instructor:  Hannah Faulkner is a nearshore biologist with the Washington Department of Fish & Wildlife Habitat Science Team. Her current research interests include monitoring effects of shoreline modification on nearshore habitat, identifying and assessing the distribution and characteristics of forage fish spawning habitat, assessing new methods of detecting forage fish spawn, monitoring the implementation of marine bulkhead HPA permits, and exploring new survey methods and data processing techniques using unmanned aircraft systems (UAS).

    This training provides information and methods for determining the ordinary high water mark (OHWM) as defined in the state Shoreline Management Act (SMA). Waters regulated under the SMA include all tidal waters, streams greater than 20 cubic feet per second mean annual flow, water bodies greater than 20 acres in size, and any associated wetlands and deltas.       

    In this training, you will learn answers to these questions:      


    • How is the OHWM defined and where does it apply?
    • What is the regulatory context and history of the OHWM?
    • Why it is important to use field indicators to determine the OHWM?
    • What are the most reliable field indicators on tidal waters, streams, lakes, and associated wetlands?
    • What are some common misconceptions about OHWM determinations?

    The three-day training includes two virtual sessions that will take place on Zoom on October 5 and October 6 (9:00 AM - 12:30 PM). Participants will have the option to log on 15 minutes early on day 1 for a brief Zoom introduction. 


    On October 7, the participants will complete the field component of the training. Participants will practice how to determine the OHWM at four field sites in Thurston County with an instructor and 5-7 participants. The sites include a high-energy marine site (Burfoot Park), low-energy marine site (Woodland Creek), lake site (Longs Pond), and stream site (Pioneer Park). Please block your calendar from 8:30 AM - 3:30 PM for the field component. 


    During the field component, all participants will be expected to follow Washington Department of Ecology’s COVID-19 guidelines at the time of the training. You will likely be asked to complete a health survey 12 hours before the field component and wear a mask (11 AICP CM Credits/CEP Points).

    This four-day intensive workshop will provide wetland regulators and consultants with practical information and experience in using the 2014 update to the rating system for wetlands in western Washington. It is specifically designed for those who will be using the rating system in the field. You will gain a working knowledge of topics such as the hydrogeomorphic classification of wetlands, how to separate wetlands into units for rating, and how to answer all the questions on the field form. The purpose of the class is to provide you with knowledge so that you can fill out the rating form on your own. You will receive a copy of the rating system manual.

    It is important that you already have some experience and/or education in delineating wetlands and identifying natural wetland features such as outlets, boundaries of basins, vegetation classes, and some ability to distinguish between different plant species.


    This course will include two required virtual sessions on Zoom on 11/30 (9:00 am - 12:30 pm) and 12/1 (9:00 am - 12:00 pm). Participants will visit sites with the instructor in Thurston County on 12/2 (9 am - 4:30 pm). The sites are located at the Woodland Creek Community Park in Lacey, WA and Capitol Lake Interpretive Park in Olympia, WA.  As follow up to this, the instructor will host an optional virtual post-field site visit session on Zoom on December 9th (9:00 am -12:00 pm).


    Please note that it is mandatory to attend the virtual sessions on 11/30 and 12/1 and in-person field session on 12/2 to obtain your certification for the rating system. During the field component, all participants will be expected to follow Washington Department of Ecology’s COVID-19 guidelines at the time of the training. You will likely be asked to complete a health survey within 12 hours of the field component and wear a mask. (13.5 CM AICP Credits/CEP Points)

    This practical, hands-on virtual class is intended for local government personnel and consultants engaged in shoreline permitting activities.


    The class will take an in-depth look at the permit process and consider both procedural and substantive shoreline management issues. The Washington Administrative Code (WAC) and Revised Code of Washington (RCW) will be reviewed. 


    This class is appropriate for both beginners and more experienced planners. To prepare for the class, participants will complete a 30-minute pre-assignment by December 14th. Additionally, between December 14 and December 15, the participants will complete a 30-minute permitting exercise on their own and spend about 10 minutes identifying a specific shoreline permitting question for the instructors.


    Participants will have the option to log on 15 minutes early on December 14 for a brief Zoom introduction and 30 minutes early on December 15 to ask additional shoreline permitting questions. The December 14 and December 15 virtual sessions will start at 9:00 am and end at 12:30 pm (7 CM AICP Credits/ CEP Points)
