--------- PART II. OBSERVATIONS. Describe deficiencies in PART III.

GOOD HOUSEKEEPING FOR CONSTRUCTION MATERIALS

  • Inventory of products (excluding materials designed to be outside)

  • Stockpiled construction materials not actively in use are covered and bermed?

  • All chemicals are stored in watertight containers with appropriate secondary containment?

  • Construction materials are minimally exposed to precipation?

  • BMP's preventing the off-site tracking of materials are implemented and properly effective

GOOD HOUSEKEEPING FOR WASTE MANAGEMENT

  • Wash/rinse and materials are prevented from being disposed into the storm drain system

  • Portable toilets are contained to prevent discharges of waste

  • BMP's preventing the offsite tracking of materials are implemented and properly effective.

  • Sanitation facilities are clean and with no apparent for leaks and spills

  • Equipment is in place to cover waste disposal containers at the end of business day and during rain events

  • Discharges from waste disposal containers are prevented from discharging to the storm drain system / receiving water

  • Stockpiled waste material is securely protected from wind and rain if not actively in use

  • Procedures are in place for addressing hazardous and non-hazardous spills

  • Appropriate spill response personnel are assigned and trained

  • Equipment and materials for clean up of spills is available onsite

  • Washout areas are contained appropriately to prevent discharge or infiltration into the underlying soil

GOOD HOUSEKEEPING FOR VEHICLE STORAGE AND MAINTENENCE

  • Measures are in place to prevent oil/grease/fuel from leaking into the ground, storm drains or surface waters

  • All equipment and vehicles leaks are cleaned immediately and disposed of properly

  • Vehicle and equipment leaks are cleaned immediately and disposed of properly

  • All equipment or vehicles are fueled, maintained and stored in a designated area with appropriate BMP's

GOOD HOUSEKEEPING FOR LANDSCAPE MATERIALS

  • Stockpiled landscape materials such as mulches and topsoil are contained and covered when not actively in use

  • Erodible landscape material has not been applied 2 days before or during a rain event

  • Erodible landscape materials are applied at quantities and rates in accordance with MFR recommendations

  • Bagged erodible landscape materials are stored on pallets and covered

GOOD HOUSEKEEPING FOR AIR DEPOSITION OF SITE MATERIALS

  • Good housekeeping measures are implemented onsite to control the air disposition of site materials and from site operations

NON-STORMWATER MANAGEMENT

  • Non-stormwater discharges are properly controlled

  • Vehicles are washed in a manner to prevent non-stormater discharges to surface water or drainage system

  • Streets are cleaned in a manner to prevent unauthorized non-stormwater discharges to surface waters or drainage system

EROSION CONTROLS

  • Wind erosion controls are effectively implemented

  • Effective soil cover is provided for disturbed areas inactive (i.e., not scheduled to be disturbed for 14 days) as well as finished slopes, open space and completed lots

  • The use of plastic materials is limited in cases when a more sustainable environmentally friendly alternative exists

SEDIMENT CONTROLS

  • Perimeter controls are established and effective at controlling erosion and sediment discharges from the site

  • Entrances and exits are stabilized to control erosion and sediment discharges from the site

  • Sediment basins are properly maintained

  • *** Linear sediment control along toe and face of slope and at ground breaks - Risk Level 2 & 3 only

  • *** Limit construction activity to and from site to entrances and exits that employ effective controls to prevent offsite tracking (Risk level 2 & 3 only)

  • *** Ensure all storm, drain inlets and perimeter controls, runoff control BMP's and pollutants controls at entrances and exits are maintained and protected from activities to reduce their effectiveness (Risk level 2 & 3 only)

  • *** Inspect all immediate access roads daily (Risk level 2 & 3 only)

RUN-ON AND RUN-OFF CONTROLS

  • Run-on to the site is effectively managed and directed away from all disturbed areas

OTHER

  • Are the project SWPPP and BMP plans up to date, available on-site and being properly implamented
