SWPPP Inspections

Cherokee Tribal SWPPP will perform all state required NPDES/SWPPP Compliance Inspections per section 6 of the 2015 State of Florida Department of Environmental Protection NPDES Generic permit for Storm Water Discharge for Large and Small Construction Activities. Our company offers 3rd party SWPPP Inspections, 1st party SWPPP Management, SWPPP Audits, Due Diligence Inspections and Water Sampling for CGP Compliance by qualified and experienced inspectors. Cherokee Tribal SWPPP offers ON-SITE and ON-LINE SWPPP Inspection Documentation as well as Rain Log Management and SWPPP MAP Update Documentation Management. Taking this burden off the shoulders of the client and away from the construction site superintendents-allows them to do what they do best--BUILD and PROFIT. The main reason that inspections are required by the permit is because storm water discharges from construction activities can significantly impact quality. As storm water flows over a construction site, it can pick up pollutants like sediment, debris and chemicals and transport them into nearby storm sewer systems or directly into rivers, lakes, or coastal waters.

Cherokee Tribal SWPPP offers SWPPP Book Permit Preparation for Florida Compliance, Existing SWPPP Book Audits for systemic violations and amendment requirements, Permit Authorship, (NOI) Notice of Intent, (NOT) Notice of Termination Preparation and Submittal Service. Its important to know that a proper Storm Water Pollution Plan mitigates the environmental risk during project operation. It also allows for better sub contractor interaction, creates a better overall environmental awareness and reduces cost of BMP installation and maintenance. Proper "Best Management Practices" (BMPs) being integrated from the very beginning of the project increases the profitability potential success for all parties involved. The Florida Permit program requires a permit for discharges from construction activities that disturb one or more acres, and discharges from smaller sites that are part of a larger common plan of development or sale. Construction storm water permits include effluent limits for erosion and sediment control, pollution prevention, and site stabilization.

SWPPP Training

Cherokee Tribal SWPPP offers Ergonomic SWPPP Planning to help reduce the cost of "Best Management Practices" (BMP) Implementation and Maintenance over the life of the project for a more significant profitability potential. Site specific SWPPP Training is available to all members of the client 's team to help educate and make aware the Sites potential environmental liability. This knowledge will provide a broader path to project success for all related activities. Proper "Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plan" (SWPPP) training and education is one of the most overlooked aspects of building industry in the 21st Century. This is because the program is often misunderstood-with a regulatory disconnect from the City to County to State Permits and often unequal industry enforcement. The key to success in having a compliant program is to be "PRO-ACTIVE" in proper SWPPP implementation, not "RE-ACTIVE" to a failed program and potential liability enforcement issues.
