Stormwater Facilities Maintenance and Repair Services
Stormwater is runoff that occurs from rainfall or snow melt that flows over the ground or impervious surfaces such as asphalt, concrete and rooftops. This runoff can and does collect debris and pollutants that can negatively affect our environment. In order to offset these negative effects, stormwater should be treated and managed. The treatment and management for this runoff is to be found in the installation and operation of BMPs or stormwater facilities. This is where we come in! All of these devices and facilities require some form of maintenance and possible repairs.
So, what is Storm Water Facilities Maintenance? To be honest, almost every governing authority, (town, city, municipality, state etc…) have their own definition. Carolina Outdoor Services describes is as a complete maintenance program for any and/or all Storm Water devices. Such devices in these facilities usually consist of Retention/Detention Ponds, Drainage Ditches, Bio-Retention Ponds or Rain Gardens, Catch Basins, Underground and Alternative Systems. Our goal is to meet all of your Post Construction Stormwater Maintenance and Repair needs.
We will always put our customers, work quality,
and the environment first.
When caring for stormwater management areas, important factors include proper vegetation maintenance, structural integrity, public safety, water quality, downstream effects and aesthetics. We can evaluate each of these areas and customize a program to meet each customer’s specific needs. We offer inspection services that enable us to report any potentially non-compliant issues, to our customers before regulatory agents have involvement.
This is the first line of defense against costly repair issues. We can identify any existing repair issues and set forth maintenance plans to help prevent future issues. Regulatory agencies inspections usually end up costing more without our inspections first. Therefore, in most cases it pays for itself or saves you money.
Maintenance and Repair
Sometimes it can be difficult to understand the complexities of the regulations for stormwater BMPs. These regulations and codes are usually set by local EPA regulations, Clean Water Act (CWA) codes, and the National Pollution Discharge Eliminations System (NPDES) permit. We try to help our customer understand these regulations and set forth a customized plan for all repairs or maintenance required.
The best way to keep things working properly and keep repair cost down is to perform regularly scheduled maintenance.
