Industrial Stormwater Support

Supporting our industrial, municipal, and construction industry clients navigate the quickly evolving regulatory and litigation-driven world of storm water NPDES Permit compliance. Our qualified engineering and regulatory experts are focused on our client’s compliance obligations while working to develop practical strategies and solutions to complex storm water challenges.

Our work with our industrial clients over the past 20 plus years has given us tremendous insight in developing compliance strategies for sites covered under General Storm Water NPDES Permits as well as individual NPDES Permits. Our experience includes working with numerous dischargers, many who, in addition to the requirements of their industrial NPDES permits, also have compliance obligations of Consent Decrees and Settlement Agreements with third-party environmental groups

Most of our clients are required to meet stringent discharge standards (i.e., benchmarks, action levels, or more stringent water quality based effluent limits). GSI has worked with these clients to prepare exceedance response action (ERA) reports and implement advanced best management practices (BMP), including storm water treatment controls, detention and containment systems, infiltration systems, and diversion/ discharge to the sanitary sewer system.

We have also supported hundreds of industrial dischargers with all aspects of storm water NPDES permit compliance, including preparation of storm water pollution prevention plans and monitoring programs, sample collection, BMP evaluation and recommendations, data analysis, hydrologic calculations, response to regulatory enforcement, and reporting obligations.

Our staff consists of experienced storm water practitioners with requisite certifications (Professional Civil and Geotechnical Engineers, Professional Geologists, QISPs, QISP Trainers of Record (ToRs), CPSWQs, CPESCs, etc,) to support of our client’s specific compliance needs.
