A one-acre stormwater management facility was cited by the local municipality as being non-complaint with local, state, and federal stormwater regulations. The municipality began fining the community for non-compliance and requested the stormwater management facility be repaired per an engineer’s specifications. The community hired SOLitude Lake Management to repair and complete the work in accordance with the approved plans.
Scope of Work:
The following items were carried out to bring the stormwater management facility into compliance. The stormwater construction crew worked off of the approved engineer’s plans, which needed to be signed by the engineer once completed.
The large stormwater management facility has not been maintained since its completion over ten years ago. The local municipality discovered the oversight and required the community to hire a stormwater engineer to create a plan that is complaint with the North Carolina stormwater management facility manual and Federal NPDES regulations. The municipality put a time restriction on when the repairs needed to be completed. The municipality ultimately fined the community for not adhering to the request in the time allotted. The repair and compliance work was then approved with an immediate start date required, even though the work was recommended to be performed in warmer months to allow the area to dry and reduce the risk of heavy equipment becoming stuck and having access issues.
The project moved forward as directed by the municipality, which now has 90% of its stormwater BMPs in compliance with federal regulations. Although there were weather delays, the project was completed on time and the engineer, municipal inspector, and client signed off on the project’s completion within the estimated timeline. Once the stormwater management facility was deemed compliant, the community no longer had to worry about being fined for stormwater non-compliance.
