Both the community and industry can benefit from “Green Infrastructure” installation. The MS4 General Permit requires communities to implement and enforce a Stormwater Management Plan (SWMP) designed to greatly reduce the discharge of pollutants from small MS4s, protect water quality, and satisfy the appropriate water quality requirements of Ohio Revised Code 6111 and the Clean Water Act.
Instead of continual storm sewer maintenance, Green Infrastructure provides long-term solutions for more affordable and sustainable stormwater management.
Green Infrastructure such as bioretention cells and wetlands reduce and treat stormwater runoff for nutrients and decreases flooding through the establishment of functional floodplains. Permeable pavers reduce salt use, and Green Infrastructure also reduces the heat island effect—common in urban areas.
Additionally, Green Infrastructure can be used by the industry as a Best Management Practice Plan to address pollutants identified in benchmark sampling requirements. Communities, as well as other regulatory agencies, may enact stormwater utility fees that are based on permeable surfaces in the future. Green Infrastructure can reduce your permeable footprint and your stormwater discharge to save you money in utility fees. Enviroscience can design and build Green Infrastructure in concert with our construction partners, RiverReach, saving you time and money.
Our Green Infrastructure assistance includes:
- Design Best Management Practices (BMPs)
- Environmental Permits
- SWPPP Preparation
- BMP Construction and Maintenance
