Municipal governments face the daunting task of managing multiple minimum control measures (MCMs) and reporting requirements associated with their MS4 stormwater permit. CloudCompli offers municipalities a cost-effective and innovative way to manage the competing demands of their stormwater program.
Ensuring that your separate storm sewer systems comply with state regulations can be time consuming, and reporting on the systems can be even more daunting. CloudCompli removes redundant work through our automated cloud-based systems, saving time and money, minimizing risk and providing clarity on your environmental footprint.
Created in 1972 by the Clean Water Act, the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit program is authorized to state governments by EPA to perform many permitting, administrative, and enforcement aspects of the program. The NPDES MS4 permit requires, permittees to develop and implement a comprehensive Storm Water Management Program (SWMP) that must include:
Pollution prevention measures
Treatment or removal techniques
Use of legal authority, and
Other appropriate measures to control the quality of storm water discharged to the storm drains and thence to waters of the United States. ( See References: NPDES, EPA)
Municipal governments face the daunting task of managing reporting requirements associated with stormwater runoff for large developed areas. Municipalities benefit from the cost-effective and innovative way in which water quality protection programs are managed. Municipalities are often responsible for inspecting hundreds and sometimes thousands of sites.
Municipal Separate Storm Sewer Systems (MS4 Stormwater permits) are the water conveyance systems, including roads with drainage systems, municipal streets, catch basins, curbs, gutters, ditches, channels, and storm drains that are designed to collect and convey stormwater.Discuss your challenges
CloudCompli integrated their GIS data into the digital workflows of site inspections onto the permit management software platform. With the ability to interpret and analyze the inspection data, city managers could better manage scarce resources with greater efficiency (link to Blog on GIS). By integrating GIS layers in CloudCompli, we have created a powerful interactive tool that improves the ability of Municipal Storm Water Divisions and Regional Water Boards to regulate stormwater discharges from municipal separate storm sewer systems (MS4s).Lets Talk Solutions
In 2016, the City and County of Honolulu was required to implement a new 3rd Party Construction inspections program. We were fortunate to come across CloudCompli and were immediately attracted to its focus on helping municipalities with MS4 compliance in a cost-effective manner. Access to centralized data has helped management meet requirements and we couldn’t be more pleased with the support that they provide to our program.Randall Wakumoto, City and County of Honolulu
