NPDES Stormwater Discharge Permits
Stormwater runoff results from rain and snowmelt that flow over land or other surfaces, such as paved streets, parking lots, rooftops, and does not soak into the ground. As the runoff flows over land, it picks up pollutants, such as trash, chemicals, oils, dirt, and more that can harm our rivers, streams, lakes, and coastal waters. To protect these resources, communities, construction companies, and others use stormwater controls.
At W F Biggins Associates, Inc., we specialize in stormwater runoff discharge management. We start by surveying your facility to determine if there are any possible contact points between potential pollutants and stormwater. Next, we survey the area surrounding your facility to determine if there are any likely points of discharge of stormwater from your facility to the navigable waters of the United States.
If these conditions exist, we will file your Notice of Intent to join the stormwater discharge permit for your industry sector. We will then prepare your Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan, including the potential impact of your stormwater discharges on any properties of the National Historic Trust in proximity to you and upon the federal endangered species in your area.
We will also assist you in establishing a stormwater sampling and testing program. Finally, we will help you establish and train a Stormwater Pollution Prevention Team at your facility using interactive classroom training techniques.
