Stormwater Quality Narratives
When tasked with developing a Stormwater Quality Management Plan (SWQMP) most civil engineers groan.
This is understandable given that while important, developing narratives is not as interesting as solving the multitude of design challenges involved in civil design. And so it comes as no surprise that this task is usually relegated to the most junior of EITs, typically resulting in a hodgepodge of ideas pulled from the internet, most of which are irrelevant or worse, unnecessarily obligate the property owner to maintenance that is not required per local ordinance.
The truth is that any maintenance or inspection schedule in the SWQMP must be adhered to. And that schedule could be above and beyond the requirements, adding to operating expenses for the owner.
At Stormwater Professionals group we can take this burden off you plate “turn-key” by development of narratives as well as document submittals. Or, we can just provide the narrative and you can submit if you prefer. We can also assist in proper BMP selection, focusing on not just the upfront cost, but also the often-overlooked maintenance costs and ultimately, cost of owner ship.
Contact us today with your latest project and we’ll provide a no cost assessment and recommendations for providing stormwater quality, including a breakdown of upfront as well as estimated ongoing maintenance costs. In fact, we’re so confident that you will find value in this service that we will provide your first SWQMP at no cost with no further obligation.
