The state or local jurisdiction inspects all privately owned Stormwater treatment facilities on a regular basis for such things as high sediment, missing or broken components, drainage issues and aquatic vegetation and aquatic nuisance. Within weeks an inspection letter goes out detailing any issues with the BMP. The city / state will provide a list of licensed inspectors who can provide assistance in bringing the device back into compliance.
Approximately 60 days after issuing the Notice of Non-Compliance letter, the City or State will perform a site inspection to check on the repairs. If repairs to the system have not been done, clients could receive a Notice of Violation letter with impending fines.
It is a good idea to contact a reputable inspector after receiving a letter about your BMP to avoid any of these fines. Another option is to engage a licensed retention pond specialist to monitor and or maintain your investment each month. Stormwater Solutions is such a specialist and we would be happy to discuss your letter with you, meet you on your property and answer any questions you may have about bringing your system back into compliance.
