Storm Water Services

The construction industry is a critical participant in the nation’s efforts to protect streams, rivers, lakes, wetlands, and oceans. Through the use of best management practices (BMPs), construction site operators are the key defense against erosion and sedimentation.

As storm water flows over a construction site, it picks up pollutants like sediment, debris, and chemicals. High volumes of storm water can also cause stream bank erosion, and destroy downstream aquatic habitat. Preventing soil erosion and sedimentation is an important responsibility at all construction sites.

In addition to the environmental impact, uncontrolled erosion can have a significant financial impact on a construction project. It costs money and time to repair gullies, replace vegetation, clean sediment-clogged storm drains, replace poorly installed BMPs, and mitigate damage to other people’s property or to natural resources.

Our primary objective is keeping the General Contractor in compliance with the Construction General Permit and/or the NPDES General Permit. HUB and DBE Certified.

Construction Storm Water Plan Development

Developing & Implementing a Plan

You must have a Plan that includes erosion and sediment controls, and pollution prevention measures and best management practices (BMPs). SWPPP Plans require:

  • Advance planning and training to ensure proper implementation of the BMPs
  • Erosion and sediment control BMPs in place until the area is permanently stabilized
  • Pollution prevention BMPs to keep the construction site “clean”
  • Regular inspection of construction sites to ensure proper installation and maintenance of BMPs
