Important Update Regarding the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality
By Brendan Haugh // 2020-12-07
We’ve received news regarding regulatory stormwater inspections that we would like to share. ADEQ is currently not on pace to meet their inspection quota for sites operating under the construction general permit. In an effort to meet this quota, they have informed us that we should expect to see an exponential increase in inspections. Henceforth, each inspector has been tasked with completing 4+ residential construction inspections per week.
Earthworks will continue to inform you of any such inspections as we are made aware, and in turn coordinate the response, records submissions, and so on. We kindly ask that you always inform an Earthworks team member in the event that a regulator contacts you. ADEQ has developed a remote inspection program to avoid in-person interactions. We have become quite familiar with the new process and will work with you from inspection notification to receipt of a compliant report.
