Industrial and Commercial Inspections
Utilizing our knowledge and experience, EEC Environmental (EEC) can provide the field inspection services needed to ensure continued compliance with the regulations of any Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4) National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit.
EEC can conduct on-site facility inspections as outlined in the MS4 NPDES permit. EEC can also evaluate each high, medium, and low industrial facility to determine if that facility’s priority should be reclassified.
As part of the facility inspections, EEC assesses indoor and outdoor areas associated with stormwater runoff and conveyance and reviews the following: material and waste handling and storage practices; written documentation of pollutant control BMP implementation, including internal inspection logs and reports, stormwater pollution prevention plan (SWPPP) (as applicable), and spill response plans; maintenance procedures; and implementation of source control measures.
Construction Site Inspections
To verify the implementation and effectiveness of construction site BMPs, EEC conducts visual site inspections of high-, medium-, and low-priority construction projects. At a minimum, construction site inspections include:
- Verification of coverage under the General Construction Permit (for sites greater than 1 acre);
- A documented review of the Erosion and Sediment Control Plan (ESCP) to ensure that the BMPs implemented on-site are consistent with the appropriate phase of construction;
- Visual observation for non–stormwater discharges and potential pollutant sources;
- An assessment of the effectiveness of BMPs implemented at the site and identification of the need for any additional/modified BMPs.
