Stormwater runoff accumulates chemicals, debris, and sediment that can cause damage to natural resources. Through stormwater management systems like bioretention basins, flooding and demands on public stormwater drainage systems can be reduced and the quality of nearby water resources can improve.
To get the maximum benefits, stormwater management systems require careful planning and maintenance. Overgrown vegetation, local regulation compliance, and flooding are some common challenges, and Davey Resource Group (DRG) can step in at any part of the process to help you overcome stormwater challenges.
Design and Installation
Designing and installing stormwater management systems can be a daunting process. With several different types of systems to select—for example, rain gardens, bioswales, pavers—each with different uses and benefits, developing a stormwater management system can seem overwhelming. Davey Resource Group’s team of experts have the skills and experience with a number of system types and can guide you through the complete design-build process.
Inspections and Reports
Davey Resource Group leverages existing relationships with regulatory bodies and innovative technologies such as ResourceKeeper to streamline the stormwater inspection and reporting process. Our team has the knowledge and experience with stormwater regulations to perform detailed inspections and help create precise reports in a timely manner. We can assist with: retention and detention basins, ponds, pervious paving systems and green infrastructure stormwater control measures.
Stormwater management systems require routine maintenance to continue performing at their best. The ongoing maintenance stormwater management systems require, such as vegetation management, biomass removal, invasive species removal, and minor repairs should be performed by a trusted environmental consulting professional such as the DRG team of experts. Our staff has partnered with large corporate and municipal clients as well as HOAs and residential homeowners.
Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plans (SWPPP)
The DRG team can assist you in developing a SWPPP plan for a construction site or an industrial facility. Our SWPPPs include a plan for site specific Best Management Practices (BMPs), along with detailed site maps and topographic maps as required.
Part of our clients’ successes is the science behind our services. The expertise of our stormwater professionals, engineers, landscape architects, botanists and ecologists, backed by the scientists at Davey’s in-house technical development and research department, brings the latest science to our clients’ properties at any part of the project process.
How is green infrastructure different from traditional stormwater management?
Green infrastructure mimics the way natural areas absorb and clean stormwater. Bioretention systems, bioswales, vegetated swales, and rain gardens provide an environment where stormwater can be filtered and absorbed into the ground through sand, rocks, and other natural means before returning to waterways.
Not only does this provide an environmentally-friendly stormwater solution, but green infrastructure can also reduce the amount of stormwater entering public sewer systems.
Some communities require certified professionals to complete routine inspections, such as stormwater inspection reports and annual stormwater inspections. These professionals have specialized knowledge and specific insight into the health and aesthetics of a stormwater system, and having them on staff adds a layer of confidence for the regulatory bodies that the job will be done within the appropriate constraints.
These often include:
>> Partner with qualified stormwater managers to ensure your stormwater is professionally managed and in compliance to city and state regulations.
Developing a smart, compliant stormwater management plan is essential to every successful project.
