Permit Renewal

post construction

We use available data to create your site plan, including watershed models like this one of Harris County

According to the EPA and the TCEQ, all Phase 1 and Phase 2 Municipalities are required to submit for coverage under the MS4 General Permit (TXR040000). Any urbanized areas larger than 10,000 people are required to manage their storm water runoff through structural and non-structural practices. We assist cities, counties and other municipalities to prepare their tenants of stormwater management for their MS4 (municipal separate storm sewer system) as well as assist in the inspection and maintenance of their watershed. Some of the requirements of the 6 minimum control measures we help groups with are:post construction

  • public education and outreach
  • public involvement or participation
  • detection and elimination of illicit discharges
  • controls for storm water runoff from construction sites
  • post-construction storm water management in areas of new development and redevelopment
  • pollution prevention and “good housekeeping” measures for municipal operations

The biggest process for most MS4 operators with regards to stormwater management is the education and awareness for both employees and their public. We offer classes, seminars, training and consulting to MS4’s, developers, engineers and contractors alike.

What About Sandy Clay?

Soil is the building block that stormwater plans and strategies should be based upon. You need to know what characteristics you are up against or are in your favor on each site and even sub areas of a site.

This is an example of a sandy clay soil with a deposit layer of calcium carbonate or calciferous nodules. When found naturally occurring on a site, you must overcome them with a more aggressive maintenance program. The basic micro and macro nutrients of a plant include calcium, however it is bound up in such a way that the vegetation can’t use it and so it actually repels the vegetation.

The same situation is happening in this photo which shows a sandy clay soil with a layer of iron oxide or iron ore pellets. Again, the vegetation can’t use this iron like it is and so it is repelled.

The EPA’s 2015 final ruling of Waters of the U.S. Can be summed up in this fact sheet…
