Electrical Franchise Utility earth disturbing activities are regulated by the TPDES, which is regulated by TCEQ. There can be several different types of electrical projects, from overhead to single-family residential lots, Stormcon will review plans to let our clients know what they need to be compliant.
Stormcon develops SWPPPs based on the operator’s activities and erosion control plans. This approach helps minimize risk of exposing our clients to additional costs of BMPs they did not plan for and lowers risk of specifically defining our client’s role on site. Electrical Utility SWPPPs follow the TPDES guild lines.
Our SWPPPs are turn-key. Once we receive the civil engineering plans and required information about the project, Stormcon takes care of the rest. Turn-key includes:
- Completed SWPPP
- Creation of NOIs/NOCs/NOTs
- Submitting NOIs to TCEQ
- Notifications to MS4s
The TCEQ GCP allows for two types of routine inspections, bi-weekly and after a .5 in rain event or once every 7 days. Stormcon preforms weekly inspections once every 7 days. We use a software called StromPro Max to input the inspection report and that report is then sent electronically to the client. Stormcon does work with clients who have different inspection software, which our inspectors are then trained on and preform their weekly inspection using whichever system the client prefers.
Rain event inspections sometimes are required by city ordinances. Stormcon continues to build relationships with MS4s so we can keep up with changes in stormwater ordinances and make sure there is open communication between our clients and the MS4.
Upon the first inspection, a Stormcon inspector will deliver and post all necessary postings.
Stormcon offers several types of training programs for our land developer. Training courses include:
- On-site training for project managers to identify deficiencies in BMPs, knowledge of what is included in a SWPPP, how to make sure the SWPPP is being followed, and what to do if a regulator visits the site.
- Company classes on a variety of stormwater compliance topics
