Drainage & Stormwater Management

DRAINAGE & STORMWATER MANAGEMENT

BFA has provided stormwater design for hundreds of projects in its 45+ years in business.  We have been at the forefront of National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) Phase I and Phase II compliance as it pertains to construction site runoff control, post construction runoff control, and land disturbance permits, since Phase I regulations were promulgated in the early 1990’s.  We  work with both Municipally Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4) and non-MS4 communities throughout the country to gain permit approvals and develop Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plans (SWPPP) that meet their requirements.

BFA stands ready to satisfy the needs of commercial, industrial, municipal, and private clients.  We excel at developing solutions that garner stakeholder opinions and collaborate to include consideration of  all design interests.

Erosion & Sediment Control Plans & Design

BFA is dedicated to providing professional erosion and sedimentation control for all our projects.  We have developed SWPPPs and obtained permit coverage for projects in over 15 different states.  Our project teams are adept at contacting the proper local and state authorities and making sure our projects meet their requirements.
We maintain an active part in the Professional Organizations of our community as well.  Our company continues to present at conferences and workshops as an expert in the field of Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plans and in the inspection of permitted construction sites.

Stormwater & Design Calculations

The Professionals at BFA completely understand Stormwater Management.  From designing a parking lot or road without areas of ponding water, to creating stormwater runoff studies to meet local jurisdictional permit requirements, we can put together the plan and information to keep your project moving.  Our Stormwater Technicians and Engineers are familiar with many types of software and calculations to generate the reports and information needed to properly design your site.   We use the appropriate combination of software applications, and experience to get the answers we need to design the project and secure approvals.
