Stormwater Construction

Engineers, Builders & Developers

Owners and operators of construction sites are responsible for implementing stormwater BMP inspection and maintenance programs. To help ensure that all applicable ordinances and guidelines are being followed and that construction sites are as clean as possible, Erosion Control Inspectors will perform regular work site inspections.

Prevent Construction Site Pollution

  • Minimize soil disturbance.
  • Have erosion & sediment control measures in place before excavation begins.
  • Use appropriate erosion & sediment control measures to slow water speed & trap sediment.
  • Have & maintain a single stabilized access point to prevent tracking of sediment onto the road.
  • Surround soil stockpiles with a sediment fence.
  • Regularly inspect stormwater drains around the site to ensure they are free of pollution like litter, soil, building materials, etc.
  • Check & maintain erosion and sediment control measures daily before leaving the site & before rain.
  • Sweep & shovel all soil, earth, mud, clay & concrete waste from the roads & driveways, etc. daily and before rain.
