Stormwater Management involves design as well as inspection and enforcement activities for MS4 permitted communities.

Stormwater Management entails design, inspection, and enforcement activities for MS4 permitted communities.  These communities must regulate and enforce stormwater laws within their jurisdiction or face possible sanction from State or Federal Authorities.

  • Inspection of Permitted Construction Sites
  • Inspections of Long Term (permanent) Water Quality Best Management Practices (BMPs)

BFA has extensive experience in Distribution Center and Industrial Development.

BFA has provided stormwater design for hundreds of projects in its 55+ 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 1990s. We work with Municipally Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4) and non-MS4 communities nationwide 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.

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.
