Haley Ward’s experienced staff assists municipal, industrial, and commercial permit holders with State and Federal stormwater compliance.  Industrial clients subject to comply with the Multi-Sector General Permit (MSGP) receive assistance with Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP) development and implementation, monitoring, inspections, trainings, and best management practices (BMPs) guidance.  Municipal clients subject to the Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4) permit receive assistance with Stormwater Management Plan (SWMP) development and implementation including education and outreach, public involvement, illicit discharge detection and elimination (IDDE), construction services, post-construction services, and municipal good housekeeping measures.  We have developed standard operating procedures (SOPs) to assist municipalities with IDDE Investigations including development of Quality Assurance Project Plans (QAPPs) to aid in illicit discharge investigations.  We also provide services to municipalities seeking SOPs for construction and post-construction requirements.  Commercial clients utilize our services for post- construction inspections and 5-year recertification for long-term maintenance of stormwater management system which are completed by our professional engineers or a certified professional in erosion and sedimentation control.
