Intro to Stormwater Management

Posted on September 09, 2015 by Andrew Brunsch | 0 comments

We get calls from contractors looking for “whatever it is I need to meet the stormwater regulations” at “the lowest price”. Luckily you came to the right place, we’re here to help answer some of the questions we frequently hear about stormwater management and to help ensure our lakes, streams and rivers stay clean.

1. What are the requirements?

The requirements were set for in the EPA’s Clean Water Act, specifically the SPCC (Spill Prevention Control and Countermeasures) section of the code with purpose to protect our lakes, streams and rivers by reducing the amount of oil, sediment, and chemicals dumped into storm drains, groundwater and surface water. These regs are applicable for many companies that deal with any hydrocarbons or other contaminants on a daily basis.

Many construction companies are required to file a SWPPP “Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan” including a plan to control erosion, sediment and chemicals into the waterways. When filing a SWPPP a detailed description of BMP’s “Best Management Practices” must be included. These practices include the procedures and products that control runoff, spills, leaks, and drainage from material storage. The requirements don’t just require the proper products, but proper implementation and training.

2. What products do I need?

Without discussing your company's particular needs it’s tough to say what products will be needed for your SWPPP. Please call us to discuss your particular needs.

Storm Drain ProductsSecondary Containment BermsSpill Kits

Storm Drain Products - very common among contractors and facility maintenance, storm drain inserts are designed to filter out the majority of contaminants prior to entering the waterways. We offer these products in a number of different styles designed to fit each and every storm drain and provide filtration for trash and debris, oil, heavy-metals and more.

Secondary Containment Berms - berms are used as a form of secondary containment, providing another line of defense when containing polluting materials. Our six unique styles of containment berms ensures we have the berm to suit your needs. We have berms in stock, ready to ship to contain large frac tanks, a few 55 gallon drums, a leaky truck and much more.

Spill Kits - when catastrophe strikes it’s important to have a spill kit on hand ready to respond. Our spill kits utilize high quality absorbents to help make cleanup a quick and easy process. We offer spill kits ranging from small kits to pack in fleet vehicles or large wheeled kits for large facilities.

3. Why do I need to comply?

The majority of all U.S. storm drains lead directly to open waterways without treatment. It only takes one quart of oil to cause a two acre oil slick and serious fines for pollution.It doesn’t take an oil field to pollute our waterways, just a small amount of contamination can cause harm to the environment. We make it easy to find the right products and offer them at some of the lowest prices on the market.
