The service is offered in almost all 50 states of the United States by Cardinal. Clients include general contractors, land developers, and homebuilder clients among others.

Stormwater pollution prevention during construction activities is an important aspect of both watershed protection and stormwater compliance. Cardinal provides a plan that has all of the tools needed to manage the stormwater part of the project in a user-friendly format.

A SWPPP is an integral part of the construction preparation process that continues through the life of a project. It requires regular updates and is the first thing a stormwater inspector looks at when visiting a site.

During SWPPP production, Cardinal creates a Best Management Practices (BMP) map. This map must be updated on a weekly basis to reflect the BMP measures in place on the construction site. If any BMPs are installed or removed, they must be noted in the SWPPP.

Cardinal staff can help keep construction sites running smoothly by updating BMP logs and maps, although the responsibility ultimately falls to the construction site owner’s representative. Read more about Cardinal’s recommendations for keeping the SWPPP up to date during construction here

Changes to inspections, such as the frequency or the day of inspection must be noted in the log. Hard copies of stormwater inspections must also be kept.

Every time a street sweeper is on site it is also necessary to log the date and time. It is crucial to stay on top of SWPPP updates as they are what trained stormwater inspectors are looking for when visiting a job site.

Cardinal also has a number of additional environmental resources to make the SWPPP process as simple and easy as possible. They can be accessed here
