CONSTRUCTION STORMWATER COMPLIANCE
Stormwater runoff is one issue in stormwater compliance that warrants communities and industries to turn to stormwater management contractors in Houston, stormwater companies in Houston, storm water services or stormwater inspection. Because of the complexities of stormwater issues, RSB Environmental, based in Houston, Texas, will aid you in your understanding of stormwater compliance and stormwater solutions.
When it rains, stormwater washes over the loose soil on a construction site, along with various materials and products being stored outside. As stormwater flows over the site, it can pick up pollutants like sediment, debris, and chemicals from that loose soil and transport them to nearby storm sewer systems or directly into rivers, lakes, or coastal waters. RSB Environmental works with construction site operators to make sure they have the proper stormwater controls in place so that construction can proceed in a way that protects your community’s clean water and the surrounding environment.
In general, the NPDES stormwater program requires permits for discharges from construction activities that disturb one or more acres, and discharges from smaller sites that are part of a larger common plan of development or sale. Depending on the location of the construction site, either the state or EPA will administer the permit. See the webpage for Authorization Status for EPA’s Construction and Industrial Stormwater Programs to find out whether EPA or your state is the permitting authority for construction activities. You can also use the “Do I Need a Permit?” flow chart to help determine if and from whom you need to get NPDES permit coverage for your construction activities.
