Storm Water Pollution Prevention Programs (SWPPP) Services

QSP Consulting Services:

Inspections/Monitoring: Compliant worksites require a monitoring and inspection system in place to help identify BMP’s that are inadequate or malfunctioning. Inspections must be an ongoing process especially when new trades and activities are present on the jobsite. Along with regularly scheduled inspections, jobsites must be inspected before, during, and after the storm event if there is a 50% change of precipitation. We specialize in scheduled and unscheduled inspections on the jobsite and documentation of inspections.

Our certified SWPPP Inspectors will perform inspections and create:

  • BMP Reports
  • Quarterly Non Storm Discharge Reports
  • Site Specific Rain Event Action Plan (REAP).

We will keep all records of inspections, monitoring, and reports prepare them for your Annual reports. We can also combine SWPPPS and OSHA compliance inspections to save both time and money.

Weather & Rainfall Tracking: To keep in compliance with SWPPP, construction sites must keep track of weather forecasts as well as rainfall totals in order to prepare inspections, Rain Event Action Plans, and BMPs for potential rainfall. Along with the inspections and report making, we can track weather and rainfall conditions specific to your site and keep records along with everything else your project needs for your Annual Report and SWPPP compliance.

Sampling and Lab Analysis: Under the new requirements for the 2010 Construction General Permit, builders are required to have certified professionals sample at rain events to detect any pollutants or non-storm water discharges from the jobsite. At Scott Environmental, we have certified staff that can effectively collect field samples onsite and have the samples processed at a State-certified lab immediately.

QISP Consulting Services:

Inspections/ Monitoring: Compliant industrial facilities require a monitoring and inspection system in place to help identify BMP’s that are inadequate or malfunctioning. Inspections are required at least once per month to ensure minimum BMPs are in place and functioning properly. Along with regularly scheduled inspections, facilities must be inspected four times a year during a Qualified Storm Event ( QSE), where samples must be taken of facility discharges. We specialize in scheduled and unscheduled inspections of the facilities and documentation of inspections.

Reporting/Record Keeping: The IGP requires a facility obtain the services of a QISP when entering into level 1 status from baseline status. Scott Environmental can make this daunting task simple for our client and take the worry out of the ERA evaluation and Report. Our QISP’s will help you down the path to return to baseline status.

Some of the services that our QISPs provide are:

We will keep all records of inspections, monitoring, and reports prepare them for your Annual reports. We can also combine SWPPPS and OSHA compliance inspections to save both time and money.

Weather & Rainfall Tracking: To keep in compliance with SWPPP, Industrial facilities must keep track of weather forecasts as well as rainfall totals in order to prepare inspections, and BMPs for potential rainfall. Along with the inspections and report making, we can track weather and rainfall conditions specific to your facility and keep records along with everything else your facility needs for your Annual Report and SWPPP compliance.

Sampling and Lab Analysis: Under the new requirements for the 2015 Industrial General Permit, facilities are required to have certified professionals sample at rain events to detect any pollutants or non-storm water discharges from the facility. At Scott Environmental, we have certified staff that can effectively collect field samples onsite and have the samples processed at a State-certified lab, as well as provide sample collection training to a facilities staff.

QSD Consulting Services:

Plan Designing/Information: There is much more involved in SWPPP compliance than just implementing a few sandbags or sheeting off an embankment. BMP’s “Best Management Practices”, must be implemented year round to control sediments and non-stormwater discharge into our storm drain systems. We have professionals that can help you create your SWPPP, Erosion & Sediment Control, and REAP (Rain Event Action Plan) for your specific jobsite and provide information and tailgates to advise you and your contractors which BMP selection is most effective for your site.

SWPPP Maintenance & Amendments: The SWPPP Manual is a living document and must be updated continuously to show corrections to BMP’s and scheduling. A continuously updated SWPPP manual is one of the first items a State or Regional Water Quality Board member will look for. We will keep you updated (including SWPPP amendments) and supplied with all the documentation and materials a State or Regional Water Quality Board member would search for.

Post-Construction Standards: Our trained QSD staff can engineer post-construction best management practices (BMPs) to bring your site’s water balance back to pre-development standards.

SMARTS Data Submitting

All active construction sites (those who have activity on site or have not submitted a Notice of Termination before October 1st) must prepare and submit an annual report to the State Water Board through the SMARTS (Storm Water Multiple Application & Report Tracking System) which includes inspection, sampling, and annual reports to the State Water Board for all your sites. For your convenience, Scott Environmental can do all of your SMARTS data submitting in conjunction with our QSP inspection/monitoring/record keeping, making SWPPP compliance easy.
