There are many variables to the planning and the implementation of a successful Storm Water management plan. One critical piece is the process of the selection and use of temporary erosion and sediment controls. These controls are put in place to prevent or reduce the movement of sediment from a site during the construction process. They may be man-made structures, land management techniques, or natural processes already present on the project.
Different control measures will likely be used during various phases of construction, especially during the transition from Land Development to Vertical Construction. A thorough SWPPP inspection should be performed on a routine basis to evaluate these BMP’s for both correct location and performance. Any deficiencies found should be brought to the attention of the on-site SWPPP manager. Any changes made to the Stormwater Plan must be reflected in the project’s Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan.
Developing a comprehensive SWPPP program is an essential part of ensuring your site is compliant with local, state and federal regulations. Working with an experienced Stormwater Consultant helps to ensure regulatory compliance, reducing risk, minimizing SWP and maintenance costs in all phases of your project.
