Qualified Professional Inspector Training Program

The Qualified Professional Inspector (QPI) Program is designed to assist developers, contractors, and governmental agencies to comply with the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) Stormwater General Permit for Construction by providing the training necessary to properly inspect erosion prevention and sediment control measures at construction sites and document inspections. This permit is required for all construction activities disturbing one or more acres of land. The QPI Program is designed to train personnel to perform required inspections of construction site stormwater Best Management Practices. The Construction General Permit and local Construction Site Runoff Control Ordinances require a Qualified Professional Inspector to inspect all stormwater control measures every seven (7) or fourteen (14) days (depending on the community) and within twenty-four (24) hours of a one-quarter (0.25) inch rain event.

The QPI Program consists of a one-day training course, a QPI training manual (provided at the training session), and an exam. After passing the exam, applicants are eligible to obtain a QPI registration or license from the community prior to initiating inspection of construction site stormwater Best Management Practices.

Indiana's "Do Not Call" List

With stories of phone scams appearing in headlines lately, Indiana residents are urged to sign up for Indiana's "Do Not Call" list.

Registration is free for Indiana residents and available for residential land lines, wireless numbers, prepaid wireless numbers and voice over internet protocols.

While being placed on the list will eliminate most telemarketing calls, residents may still be contacted by certain groups such as insurance agents, newspapers, realtors and most charities. The easiest way to avoid dealing with these types of calls is by ignoring the call if you do not recognize the number.

Indiana residents can sign up for the list by clicking here.

Floyd County Substance Abuse Hotline

The Floyd County Health Department has set up a new lifeline for members of our community seeking help for their substance abuse problems.

Functional this week, the phone service provides numbers for substance abuse assistance. Callers are provided the names and organizations to contact for inpatient and outpatient therapy as well as detoxification. People may use the service anonymously or can contact a FCHD representative for assistance and follow-up.

The number is (812) 542-6844. Use is not limited to Floyd County residents. The roll-out of the lifeline will be linked to publicity efforts to increase the visibility of its number. We hope to increase utilization of services already in existence in our area. The FCHD has been working for months to increase awareness and use of community addiction assets that help those with drug issues.

“This is a part of the Health Department’s continuing response to the increasing public health effects of drug abuse in our community”, said Floyd County Health Officer Thomas M. Harris, MD. Dr. Harris did note that to date Floyd County has not yet seen the spike in Hepatitis C and HIV cases that have troubled other southern Indiana counties and have led to measures such as needle exchanges in those communities. “We are seeing an increase in the overdoses secondary to heroin, however.”

For additional information please contact the FCHD at 812-948-4726.

File Taxes for Free

IN FreefileTax season has officially begun, and Hoosiers can use Indiana freefile to file their federal and state income taxes online for free by using the same software that many people pay to use.

Eligible taxpayers with an adjusted gross income of $64,000 or less qualify to file for free using INfreefile.

Returns filed online are processed in 12 to 14 days and have a lower error rate than paper returns. Filing online is also more secure, since personal information will be in the hands of fewer people.
