Stormwater Management System Inspection
Maintaining stormwater infrastructure is vital to preventing flood
risks to facilities, downstream properties, and the environment.
Knowing when a system is in need of maintenance or repair is the
key to preventing costly damage caused by neglected stormwater management
system components. Our staff of knowledgeable inspectors and professionals
have the experience necessary to identify routine maintenence issues
from potentially major system faults. Our firm has the right equipment
available to mitigate any problem affecting your existing system.

In order to demonstrate compliance with the DEP rules, municipalities
are obligated to make annual submissions to the Department. The
inspections and reports completed by SCS are designed to satisfy
the reporting requirements of the DEP. The DEP Stormwater Rules
require that the operators of Municipal Separate Storm Sewer Systems
(MS4s) prepare and maintain stormwater Pollution Prevention Plans
(SPPP) and Stormwater Management Plans (SWM). SCS can prepare, maintain
and update these plans as well as complete the required mitigation
plans, build out analyses and other required elements of the plans.
These include the identification and tracking of illicit connections,
roadside erosion control, employee education, and public awareness
The annual inspection and maintenance of stormwater inlets and
outfalls requires accurate record keeping. SCS completes this task
by using GPS based mapping systems to inventory the inlets and assign
unique identifiers to each structure. A detailed inspection is completed
of each inlet and minor cleaning is completed as part of the normal
annual inspection. If repairs and/or higher level cleaning is required,
the work is completed based on a pre-established menu of services.
Stormwater outfalls from MS4s are located using GPS systems and
inspected for scouring at the discharge point. The outfalls are
also documented photographically to establish a baseline for future
inspections and to judge the degree by which conditions change over
In addition to maintaining mechanical water quality devices and
other structural BMPs, it is important to identify and mitigate
sources of nonpoint source pollution. SCS will be an ongoing partner
with you in identifying, controlling and mitigating nonpoint source
