Meeds Environmental’s Mobile Water Treatment Facility for stormwater treatment offers a top of the line system for compliance with the NPDES stormwater program and your SWPPP.

Stormwater runoff from construction sites can have a significant impact on the water quality for receiving waters. As stormwater flows over a construction site it can pick up pollutants like sediment, debris and chemicals.

Sediment from stormwater can destroy aquatic habitats, and high volumes of runoff can cause stream bank erosion. Polluted stormwater runoff can also harm fish and other wildlife. The Environmental Protection Agency’s National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) stormwater program requires construction sites disturbing 1 acre or more, including smaller sites in a larger common plan of development or sale, to obtain coverage under a NPDES permit for their stormwater discharges.

One part of the NPDES storm water program is the requirement that construction sites implement Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plans (SWPPP). The SWPPP addresses appropriate Best Management Practices (BMP’s) to minimize discharge of pollutants from the site.
