Help Ensure Stormwater Pond Compliance with Inspection, Maintenance & Bathymetry
Stormwater facilities (also known as BMPs) are structures that play a vital and multifaceted role in the preservation of our surrounding wetland and aquatic ecosystems. These systems are typically constructed in relation to residential and commercial development infrastructure that increases impervious surfaces and overland stormwater flow. They provide the essential temporary collection of stormwater in order to allow for filtration and basic improvement of water quality (removal of sediment, organic debris, animal waste, fertilizers, and other contaminants/nutrients) before entering natural wetland systems. For this reason, it is critical that these specially designed and constructed systems remain functioning as intended and maintain pond compliance with local, state, and federal stormwater regulations.

Learn About The Clean Water Act
According to the Clean Water Act and the regulations created by the National Pollution Discharge Elimination System, as well as state and local regulatory agencies, it is the responsibility of the property owner (i.e. homeowners associations, golf courses, commercial developments, and industry) to maintain stormwater structures located on their properties. It’s important to remember that pond compliance often differs at both the state and local levels, and can vary based on the type of stormwater structure. To ensure you are meeting the requirements of your jurisdiction and any approved maintenance plans, it’s advantageous to consult with a stormwater management professional. A professional can work with you to identify and avoid common problem areas and develop maintenance solutions that fit your needs and budget. Be sure the consultant you work with is accredited and/or licensed in Stormwater Facility Inspection and Maintenance, is a Certified Compliance Inspector of Water (CCIS), and is a National Stormwater Center Certified Stormwater Inspector.

Consider Working With Us
Understanding the different types of stormwater facilities, the various parts, and the particular regulations associated with your region can be difficult, but it’s up to the property owner to know them and abide by them, or suffer the consequences. Consider working with stormwater management professionals with the knowledge and experience needed to ensure you remain in pond compliance with stormwater management laws and regulations. The long-term care for your stormwater facility will far outweigh the headache—and cost—of non-compliance.

We look forward to working with Jeff and his professional staff in the coming years
Our Club was more interested in a mechanical removal approach to our weed problem versus a broad spectrum chemical treatment. Jeff Castellani and his team developed a plan that was well suited for our environmentally sensitive location. The mechanical hydro raking service that SOLitude provided was the perfect solution and worked very well in our shallow irrigation pond… We look forward to working with Jeff and his professional staff in the coming years.
The staff of SOLitude Lake Management identified the weed and treated the pond promptly with much success.We’ve been working with SOLitude Lake Management since 2009 when an aggressive aquatic weed was becoming a problem and taking over our pond. The staff of SOLitude Lake Management identified the weed and treated the pond promptly with much success. Since that time, our ponds have been monitored monthly by their competent staff and precautions have been taken so that the pond weeds do not get out of control. We are pleased with the quality of service and their effort to work with us towards an organic approach to keeping our ponds healthy
