Permit Management

Permit Management

Maneuvering through extensive permit requirements can be extremely confusing. Our compliance team at Merit Professional specializes in navigating the complexities of filing for storm water permit coverage. The location of your project can affect the cost, and require comprehensive information to obtain your permit.

Whenever you begin planning for a new project, we will complete your permit application and assist you in submitting it to the permit issuer. After we have prepared your permit application we routinely check to verify that your permit has been properly processed and that no delays have occurred. When our compliance inspector initially visits your project, they will verify you have the proper site notice posted with your newly acquired permit number. These quality assurance checks ensure that you avoid potential costly fines or work stop orders from your city or state storm water enforcement agency.

As well as assisting you with your permit application and filing, we also assist in closing your permit when the site has been stabilized or meets other general permit definitions for termination. Our team will also verify that all government agencies have received this executed document in a timely manner. If your permits aren’t being closed out in a timely manner, this leaves your project vulnerable to unnecessary risk and liability. Let the compliance experts at Merit Professional Services assist you with all of your permitting needs.

Merit has been our consultant since 2009. In those 8 years their expertise in Federal/Sate/Local regulations, SWPPP preparation and weekly inspections has been invaluable to our company. Merit has not only raised the education level in the field but also the compliance level for our company.

I wanted to take a few minutes to let you know how happy we are with the service we receive from Merit Professional Services in Dallas. Your managers and staff are kind, professional, and timely with everything they do.

With multiple communities in the DFW Metroplex, and a growing list of new properties, we require diligent assistance keeping up with TCEQ required Stormwater Permits, and appropriate Amendments and Notices for each successive Phase in a development. That seems simple enough on the surface, but it is a moving target that requires constant follow up.

Recorded Plats and Address Plats often arrive just days prior to the start of a community, and if your team wasn’t on top of things, always watching and reporting progress in the field, we could have been in violation of TCEQ rules many times over. SWPPP books are delivered and distributed in quick fashion once we provide your team with the necessary documentation.

It is obvious Merit has our back, and it is a great comfort to know you are there for us. We appreciate you very much!

I began working with Merit Professional Services in 2011. This firm has become our go-to vendor, for all of our storm water compliance, permitting, SWPPP and inspection needs. In a world where customer service and attention to detail appear to have become less of a priority, for most companies, Merit is the exception to that rule. I have no hesitation in recommending them. They have never failed to deliver on the high expectations that we have set and not only meet our expectations, but never cease to exceed them!
