Best Management Practices
The United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) sets standards and rules for ensuring that the natural environment is protected, while suggesting technologies and processes that are useful in implementing these pollution and erosion control goals of preventing hazardous liquids and sediment from contaminating natural ecosystems, streets and sewers. EPA guidelines that govern Commercial Erosion Control and Storm Water Management demand that builders develop a plan to control contaminant flow.
The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment has required builders to articulate, implement and maintain Best Management Practices (BMPs) before earth-moving activities commence in order to prevent the pollution of municipal storm water systems and streams. The Colorado Water Quality Control Division permit process establishes the guidelines that businesses must follow when constructing temporary barriers, tracking vehicles and cleaning construction sites upon completion of the job.
The EPA has discussed four key ecological factors affecting construction site soil erosion: soil, vegetation, topography and climate. We, at Omerta, will analyze your work site, determining BMPs that are best for your work site. Government regulations demand regular maintenance, repair and replacement of erosion control barriers in order to limit land disturbance by controlling the perimeter of the construction site in order to preserve natural vegetation. We will work with your business helping you fill out the paperwork that document your environmental regulation compliance. We can use filter fences, stabilized entrances and vehicle undercarriage cleaning to control the erosion of the work site by permitting the flow through of liquids, while retaining soil, sediment and debris in collection basins to prevent contamination of external ecosystems.
Tracking the numerous federal and state regulations can be confusing for the average layman. All of these laws have strict timetables for applications, inspections, record-keeping and maintenance of BMPs. Trust in professionals who have a strong background, experience and knowledge of all relevant environmental regulations, technologies and processes.
