Stormwater Inspections

Why are Stormwater Inspections so important?

Here is an example:  

One rainy day on a small construction site a very small rill has formed on an area that has just been graded.  The job has no Stormwater Inspector so each week the small rill has filled the Silt Fence below the graded area to the top.  Now another heavy rainfall event hits the job site and this small rill that had formed is now a gully and blown out the Silt Fence since it was not inspected and repaired and was already at max capacity.  All of this sediment has reached a small but pristine stream in the hollow.  When it makes it to the stream it slowly sheets across the once rocky stream bottom and turns it into a underwater desert.  This stream harbors many aquatic insects and smaller fish that numerous fish and birds rely on in the area.  Without habitat and hiding areas in the rocks since they are no more, natural selection has just sped up due to the small fish being taken in large quantities due to lack of habitat.  Once the smaller fish are being taken at a rate that they can not catch up to their reproductive rate then  they are no more and the  fish species, or birds that took them out no longer have an adequate food source.  Once the larger fish  have no food source they eventually die out in the stream.  All of the fish in this stream were what fed the larger stream on  down and now they lose their food source.  Not to mention that all of the birds have left the area due to their favorite meal not being available anymore allowing other non aquatic inspects to over run the area in mass.  The moral of the story is that a small feeder stream will have effects on the larger streams that they flow into and can ravage a whole ecosystem.  You are not just effecting one stream, you are indirectly effecting many.  All for simply not following the proper spec guidelines for your Silt Fence.  Not only that, you have ruined one of your states four Native Trout Streams and will be facing stiff financial penalties.

This has happened many times across the United States, don't let it happen to you.  Call us.
