If your facility is not stormwater compliant, there are very many things that could go wrong that could make you regret not taking seriously stormwater compliance. This requires stormwater inspections and much more.
For starters, if your facility is not stormwater compliant, you may easily find yourself in trouble with the authorities and this means that you could end up having your facility shut down and paying hefty fines for not being stormwater compliant. Even if you are not immediately caught by the authorities, you may find that your facility easily incurs damage that can cost you a lot and the people in your facility could easily become injured because safety is not at the top of your priorities. In essence, simply ensuring that you are stormwater compliant can ensure that you avoid a lot of trouble. Besides, it doesn’t take that much effort if you think about it and it will cost you a lot less in the long run. There is therefore no need to ever go without doing stormwater compliance at your facility. Below are some of the considerations that you have to make if you want to ensure that your facility is stormwater compliant.
First you need to understand what stormwater compliance is all about. Simply becoming conversant with the subject and understanding what its purpose is can help you to understand its importance. Once you have understood its basic importance you will then be able to see how you can best implement stormwater compliance at your facility. This is the most important aspect of stormwater compliance because if you are able to implement good stormwater compliance practice to the exact needs of your facility, then you will never have to worry about not meeting the standards that have been set by authorities. This of course means that you need to study all the requirements that the local authorities have set so that you not only meet them but you surpass them. All this will ensure that your facility will pass any stormwater inspections now and in the future.
Once you have studied and understood SWPPP and everything that it entails, one of the things that you will come to realize is that you actually need the manpower to be able to implement all the things that you want to accomplish at your facility. By appointing a stormwater team, you will have the staff dedicated to ensuring that all the things that need to be done are done on time, and when the need arises. If you for example have an emergency situation over the weekend, the simple fact that you have the staff dedicated to this duty will mean that you don’t have to worry about anything happening when you are not around. Additionally having tools including an app for stormwater will ensure that you are always upraised about any situation that may need your attention.
