Run Off Protection
Run Off Protection
Stormwater Education and Outreach: Information about storm water discharges and approaches to reduce storm water pollutants. Stormwater: The flow of water that results from precipitation and which occurs immediately following rainfall or as a result of snowmelt. Public Involvement & Participation: Public participation in activities associated with stormwater pollution prevention and reduction.
Stormwater discharges are made by precipitation and runoff from soil, pavements, building rooftops and other surfaces. These hardened surfaces are called impervious surfaces and they don’t allow rainfall to infiltrate into the soil surface like natural vegetation, therefore a lot of the rainfall becomes stormwater runoff. Storm water runoff accumulates pollutants such as oil and grease, chemicals, nutrients, metals, and bacteria as it travels across land. Griffin Parking Area Maintenance provides the services needed to mitigate the EPA Stormwater Protection Program requirements.
When a rain event occurs, many things can happen to the precipitation. A number of the precipitation infiltrates into the soil surface, some is consumed by plants, and some is evaporated into the atmosphere. Stormwater is the remaining part of the precipitation that runs off land surfaces and mountainous regions.
Post-Construction Storm Water Management Program: Minimize water quality and quantity impacts after construction job conclusion. Pollution Prevention & Good Housekeeping: Develop and implement a process & maintenance program to decrease storm water pollution from municipal operations.
Illicit Discharge Detection & Elimination Program: Detect and eliminate illicit discharges such as cross connections between the storm and sanitary collection systems, and illegal dumping of pollutants to the storm system.
The state of Florida enforces the Environmental Protection Agency (Florida EPA) National Pollution Discharge and Elimination System (NPDES) Phase II program. The Phase II regulations, a part of the Clean Water Act, need small municipal separate storm sewer systems in urbanized areas, defined by the census bureau, to create Stormwater Management Program and apply for permit coverage. This program is governed by the Florida EPA. The objective of this mandate is to control pollutants entering municipal storm water system which discharge into receiving waters of the State of Florida. Municipalities must implement a continuing comprehensive Stormwater Management Program that addresses the Minimum Control Measures (MCM).
