Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plans (SWPPPs)

Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plans (SWPPPs)

The Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plan is a legal document that serves as the agreement between regulatory agencies and you. The SWPPP is a living document which requires regular updates as your project’s conditions change.

At Merit Professional Services our SWPPPs are prepared by environmental experts that have engineered thousands of storm water plans. Our team’s end goal is to create a compliant and cost-efficient program backed by our commitment to exceptional service.

Our SWPPPs will meet your project’s federal, state, and local regulatory requirements. It is important to understand that a one-size fits all or generic SWPPP template can open you to unnecessary risk including large fines or work stop orders. Our storm water plans have been tested by numerous regulatory agencies and our commitment to quality continually prevails.

Once you have requested us to engineer your storm water plan, we dispatch one of our experts to visit your site and review your erosion control plan. During this review, we verify that all erosion and sediment controls were properly chosen, located, and designed specifically for your site conditions. If there are more cost-efficient controls that would be compliant we will communicate these to you as possible alternatives. Again, our goal is to keep you compliant at the lowest possible cost.

Since Merit Professional has taken over our 3rd Party SWPPP management 4 years ago, CalAtlantic Austin has experienced fantastic communication, responsiveness, and commitment from their entire staff. As we’ve grown together, Merit continues to meet our inspection and reporting details, leading to a perfect internal audit score this quarter. We fully trust Merit’s abilities and value their partnership greatly.

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!
