BMP Inspection and Maintenance

Sept. 3, 2015

While inspection and maintenance are a critical part of BMP performance, it’s all too often overlooked…until it’s too late. The result? Poor performance, unforeseen maintenance costs, inspection surprises, and possible fines. So, why not be proactive and keep your post-construction stormwater BMPs a step ahead of the inspectors?

Join Steven Polk for the final session in our Post-Construction Stormwater BMPs Master Class Series exploring how to assess, create, and implement an effective post-construction stormwater BMP inspection and maintenance plan to keep your BMPs working AND keep compliant.

This webinar will be available live on Wednesday, Oct. 14th11:00 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. PDT / 2:00 p.m. – 3:30 p.m. EDT, and available on-demand after the live event. Register for the event by clicking the button below.

In this webinar, Polk will begin with a look at post-construction stormwater BMP inspection and maintenance approaches, and how you can assess which approach works best for you. We’ll then dive into inspection and maintenance plans, outlining the key elements, considerations, and best practices for each (including what inspectors look for), and the performance and cost advantages to integrating your inspection and maintenance plans. Building on this foundation, Polk will outline how you can assess your BMPs overall system health, design, and functionality; design an inspection and maintenance plan that proactively addresses any weaknesses in your system; and effectively implement your programs at your site to stay ahead of any potential issues. And finally, we’ll wrap up the session with a tour of real-world examples and discussion about what realistically works in the field (and what doesn’t), and the lessons learned you can apply to your inspection and maintenance programs to improve your system’s performance cost-effectively.
