SWPPP for General Contractors
When they walk into their office, they don’t understand the sweat, blood and tears you’ve put into building that new, class A, LEED Silver Certified building. Three years of your life managing budgets, assessing safety risks and navigating client expectations. The last thing you need is a local stormwater inspector breathing down your neck.
While typically less than 1% of your total contract value, local stormwater regulations can create 100% of your problems, costing you time and money. Construction EcoServices has an extensive history of effectively managing construction site stormwater needs by:
- Providing the highest level of compliance at the lowest possible price
- Value engineering the site to lower cost and improve treatment effectiveness
- Supplying construction sites with Best Management Practices that are good for both your site and the environment you are trying to protect
- Hiring and training an exceptional crew of inspectors that can assess onsite risks and help you stay ahead of potential threats
- Outfitting our inspectors with the latest technology to make them more efficient
For your next project, give Construction EcoServices the opportunity to manage your onsite stormwater risk. Our team of stormwater professionals are some of the best in the country.
FEATURED SWPPP BMP
The GrateGator above the grate storm water filter is designed to capture sediment and debris before it enters the storm water system. The GrateGator easily slides over the grate lip and provides a high-flow multidimensional filter that is lightweight, easy to use and reuse. The unit has a low profile and includes a built-in overflow to minimize flooding in significant rain events.

Stormwater: Why Care?
Stormwater management may seem like a relatively new industry, but it has actually been around since the Roman times. They knew, even back then, that managing stormwater runoff was a key issue to urban living. With poor stormwater management, both flooding and disease constantly wreaked havoc in ancient cities.
Not much has changed since then, except now, with more and more of the earth being covered over with cement and other impervious surfaces, the negative effects of poor stormwater management have increased exponentially. Our natural water supplies are at risk due to pollution and their lack of ability to recharge. The flowing of our waterways are at risk from erosion, sediment build up, and trash. And, our marine life is at risk, from all the chemicals finding their way into bodies of water.
Some may see stormwater management as just another unnecessary and unwanted cost to construction projects or property ownership and management. But, understanding the negative effects that poor or no stormwater management is causing should be a concern to us all. It affects where we live and play. It affects our marine-based food supply. It affects our dwindling water supply.
We care. It is why we do what we do.
While the rest of the country focused on treating one inch of rainfall, we were pushing the limits and learning how to manage the largest storms by using Low Impact Development (LID) / Green Stormwater Infrastructure (GSI) solutions. We believed that if we could develop LID / GSI solutions in a place like Houston Texas, we could make them work anywhere.
Not only have we succeeded, but we have the the data, the case studies, and the experiences to prove it.
Since 2005, the team at Construction EcoServices and it’s partners around the country have dedicated their work to both the big discoveries and the small, that have drastically improved the performance and reliability of Low Impact Development. Collectively, they have been compiled here on this site, so that you may take advantage of the knowledge that has come from our success and failures.
