State and municipal agencies are increasingly requiring that facilities manage their storm water discharges such that they do not exceed historical flows in duration or amount. Your facility’s last storm water permit limits probably assumed that your site was previously developed for agriculture or more intensive uses, but you may be surprised upon renewal that you are being held to a stricter “forested” standard. The net result may mean that more of your facility footprint is dedicated to storm water control (i.e., larger basins and/or less impermeable surface). Environmental Compliance can help you work through those issues with the responsible jurisdiction.
