Construction Activity Compliance Services
The EPA has aimed its considerable resources at the construction industry through the Clean Water Act’s National Pollution Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) stormwater construction general permitting program. Compliance enforcement in Texas is managed by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) under the Texas General Permit and enforced by local counties and municipalities through the MS4 permitting system. Since 2006, even small municipalities in urbanized areas like the greater Houston area, are charged with enforcing these regulations.
Given the changing nuances of enforcement, the growing tangle of overlapping enforcement agencies and the stiff consequences for non-compliance, our SWPPP services business exists to serve construction activity Operators and Owners by implementing a set of compliance services that cover all facets of SWPPP compliance:
- Regulatory documentation, permitting and planning
- Implementation of cost-saving innovative Best Management Practices (BMP)
- Maintenance of BMPs
- Inspection, monitoring, and oversight
- Mediation and negotiation with compliance authorities
- Close-out documentation and filings.
In short, we offer complete, turnkey SWPPP compliance assurance. It’s simple. No major commitment involved, just a project-by-project, performance-based relationship that will save you time and money.
We invite you to explore the key components of our program. The elements are simple, the approach comprehensive. They translate into a highly visible compliance program, which demonstrates to the enforcement authorities that you’ve taken your SWPPP responsibilities seriously.
Because we’re specialists providing these services to many construction activity Operators, we bring to bear long-term expertise, relationships and economies of scale on these issues that you simply can’t duplicate internally. Put us on your team and discover, as most of this market’s leading General Contractors have – we’ll raise your compliance levels while lowering your total costs of compliance.
Ask us to prove it on one job. We’ll earn the rest.
Stormwater Quality Management
The SWQMP describes the design and operation of permanent stormwater quality systems (i.e. water quality ponds, ‘end-of-pipe’ water treatment.) These systems require permitting and annual maintenance. SWQMP is the property owners /managers responsiblity.
Stormwater Pollution Prevention
The SWPPP is the plan to be executed and updated during construction in order to maintain compliance with laws governing stormwater discharge during the construction phase. SWPPP is temporary and is complete upon stabilization at the completion of construction.
