EROSION CONTROL PLANS
Erosion Control Plans are effective during the construction period of the projects. These plans are designed to keep sedimentation and erosion under control. As required by NPDES, air and stormwater pollutants are controlled by means of erosion control, and the property owner or his contractor shall become responsible to maintain the site in compliance with this document.
Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plans (SWPPP) are effective during the construction of the project, implementing BMPs (Best Management Practices) to stabilize the site and comply with National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES), and the State Water Resources Control Board (SWRCB), Most times a Notice of Intent (NOI) is filed with the SWRCB. SWPPP reports are designed in parallel with Erosion Control Plans. SWPPP reports are prepared using a specific certification issued by the state. Special steps shall be taken by the owner, the LRP (Legal Representative Person) to handle the SMARTS web site from SWRCB due to the amount of information, format, and timelines required to be in compliance. As QSP qualified SWPPP Practitioner is the only certified person that can render the reports to the state water resources control board until the project is about 70% complete.
WQMP – LID – SUSMP REPORTS Water Quality Management Plans are designed reports based on engineering research which deal with the quality of the stormwater to be drained (discharged) outside the property under development. Several regulations and the use of Best Management Practices apply for design of extensive documents. WQMP Reports are designed to comply with local, county, state, and federal regulations. These plans are designed in parallel with grading & storm drain Plans. See SUSMP – LID – BMP reports. Which makes the design being completed by the same civil engineer preferable.
