Stormwater Management and SWPPPs

IERS works closely with construction project designers and implementers to develop Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plans (SWPPPs). These plans include erosion controls that decrease soil erosion and prevent stormwater discharges. IERS' stormwater specialists have achieved the Qualified SWPPP Practitioner and Qualified SWPPP Developer (QSP/QSD) certifications, in addition to the Certified Professional in Erosion and Sediment Control (CPESC) certification. We work throughout the Tahoe Basin, Truckee, California and Nevada areas. Our local expertise, combined with our knowledge of local, statewide, and federal regulations will help to ensure success of your project. Please contact us online or call us at 530-581-IERS to discuss your project with our stormwater specialists.

Stormwater Management

The SWPPPs produced by IERS are accompanied by a concise SWPPP Handbook that includes practical instructions for contractor implementation of the management plan at construction sites. Our SWPPP inspectors work closely and proactively with contractors so that specifications and SWPPP regulatory requirements are clearly understood. This ensures that the construction process goes smoothly from initial erosion control BMP installation through project winterization and close-out.

SWPPP Training

IERS develops and implements highly successful stormwater management training programs. From small-scale restoration projects to large-scale developments, our stormwater training program ensures that contractors understand all aspects of SWPPP requirements throughout the construction process.

Low Impact Development (LID)

We provide sustainable stormwater management services through low impact development designs that include vegetated swales, rain gardens, and other project elements that restore or maintain hydrologic connectivity in watersheds. Learn more about low impact development on our Ecological Restoration page.
