Bexar County​ – Storm Water Management and Erosion and Sediment Control

Did you know that in Bexar County a SWPPP and/or an ESCP must be prepared by either a Certified Professional in Erosion and Sediment Control (CPESC) or a licensed professional engineer.

If the ESCP or SWPPP includes engineering calculations, then those documents must also be sealed and signed by a licensed professional engineer.

Did you also know that you must also be a Certified Erosion, Sediment & Storm Water Inspector (CESSWI) to perform the required site inspections?

We are poised to help you at Storm-Tex Services because we have personnel with both certifications, ready to assist you in your storm water and erosion control needs.

Detention Pond/Basin Maintenance

Bexar County property owners are required to inspect and maintain their detention pond/basin each year. Inspections are to be performed by a Water Quality Professional, such as a CPESC (Certified Professional in Erosion and Sediment Control) or a CESSWI (Certifed Erosion, Sediment and Storm Water Inspector), and shall be conducted either quarterly or monthly, depending on angles of slopes, coverage of vegetation, and overall pond/basin usage.Inspection reports are to be kept accessible so that Bexar County personnel may review them upon request. Mowing of the pond/basin should occur no less than 4 times per year, in order to prevent overgrowth which impairs proper vegetation from controlling erosion on the slopes. Trash and debris must be removed monthly in order to prevent it from discharging into the nearest watershed.

Pond/basin owners may be subject to requirements which ask that they have a Water Quality Professional, such as a CPESC (Certified Professional in Erosion and Sediment Control) or a CESSWI (Certifed Erosion, Sediment and Storm Water Inspector), certify that the pond/basin is operating appropriately and to County standards.
