Increased stormwater ordinance enforcement at the municipal level has led to a demand for our comprehensive stormwater management services. Clearwater Lake & Pond has experience in local regulation compliance and the design and function of different types of stormwater control measures (SCMs).
Most municipalities in the Carolinas require adherence to the state Stormwater Design Manual. This document is the rulebook for operation and maintenance determinants, as well as annual certified inspections of regulated stormwater control measures.
The majority of operation and maintenance manuals require monthly visual inspections, corrective measures after a severe weather event and an annual inspection that must be filed with the municipality. Inspection requirements vary among municipalities. These inspections must be completed by a certified stormwater professional. We maintain the licenses and certifications needed to handle the inspection, maintenance, and repairs of all types of SCMs. Contact us now to find out more.
Stormwater devices require regular maintenance. We can inspect these devices and maintain them so that they adhere to municipal regulations. Routine maintenance usually requires vegetation management (aquatic and terrestrial), monitoring of erosion control measures, evaluation of accumulated sediment, examination of inlet and outlet structures and removal of trash and debris.
We'll recommend any corrective actions necessary. With your approval, we'll repair or renovate devices in accordance with the original engineered design criteria and municipality requirements. Our careful maintenance work will help you avoid excess repair and restoration costs.
Clearwater Lake & Pond maintains numerous professional licenses and certifications. We're fully prepared to meet your stormwater inspection, repair, renovation and construction needs.
We specialize in shoreline stabilization, littoral shelf restoration, riparian buffers, erosion control and repair, floating wetlands (nutrient removal), sediment excavation (dredging) and inlet and outlet structures.
Stormwater Control Measures (SCM’s) usually begin as sediment catch basins on construction sites. These temporary basins are intended to capture displaced soil and pollutant runoff during a rain event on a construction site.
Stormwater conversions are the process of transforming a sediment basin into a stormwater control measure. i.e. wet pond, dry pond, bioretention, constructed wetlands, infiltration systems, sand filters, bio swales
Once the construction project is complete, the basin is converted to the permanent stormwater device. The SCM will then effectively treat and control stormwater runoff for the new construction…with proper maintenance
Understand that SCM’s are engineered devices with specialized maintenance requirements.
Whether your SCM’s are part of a commercial property or residential community, this is the first step to implementing a successful maintenance program.
Wet ponds, dry ponds, bioretentions, constructed wetlands, infiltration systems, bio swales, etc, all have specialized maintenance requirements. Most of these SCMs utilize living plants and/or natural products to effect treatment of stormwater runoff, thus creating a small ecosystem within the SCM. Putting off maintenance often leads to large unexpected expenditures. The old saying holds true here, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.”
Proper functionality is the whole premise behind stormwater systems. SCMs that are not maintained on a regular basis can quickly become non-compliant, requiring repairs and/or restoration. We maintain proper credentials to inspect, maintain, and repair all types of SCMs.
Municipalities under NPDES permitting require an annual inspection to be submitted for each SCM. If these devices fail inspection, a Notice of Violation (NOV) may be issued, which could ultimately lead to fines if not corrected. However, compliance repairs often can be prevented with a specialized management programs.
