Planning Ahead

Planning ahead requires a different mindset to prevent problems rather than react when they happen.

On this project we are using the neighboring property for staging; all of the runoff drains into their constructed stormwater treatment swale.

Their stormwater discharges are regulated and any non-compliance issues could be attributed to the contractor’s use of this area.

Roof Drains and Bare Soil

Thousands of gallons of clean rainwater draining off the roof deck onto bare soil turning into thousands of gallons of water that’s too dirty to discharge without treatment. With pre-planning, a temporary collection system could have been developed and installed to contain, collect and convey the clean water to an existing drainage system. Without such a system, the dirty water had to be treated chemically to reduce the turbidity enough to discharge to the storm system.
