stormwater.Normandeau offers their expertise in water quality, natural resources and land use management to meet a broad array of needs for our clients interested in low impact development and sustainable stormwater management services. Normandeau's capabilities include a comprehensive understanding of the regulations and the experience and skills to help their clients achieve cost-effective compliance. We offer the full range of stormwater and process water management assistance - from preparation of Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plans (SWPPPs) and onsite monitoring ground and surface water activities to "green" strategies that protect and restore aquatic habitats while managing site stormwater. Today, more than ever, the regulatory agencies are looking for sustainable solutions and to restore and enhance damaged habitats. We believe it is our consistent commitment to understanding watershed processes and natural aquatic ecosystems that give us a high level of credibility with the agencies.

Municipal Stormwater: We can serve as a Stormwater Program Manager for MS4 regulated communities. Our services include preparation of Stormwater Management Procedures and Plans, long term assistance for adherence to these plans and system maintenance, facilities mapping, detection of illicit discharges, stormwater discharge quality monitoring and assessment, and reporting to the USEPA or applicable state agencies.

Industrial Stormwater: Our staff currently assists a variety of large industrial clients with Multi-Sector Industrial Permit needs. Examples include power generators, landfills, recycling facilities, sand and gravel processing facility, marinas, military bases, trucking and warehousing facilities, hospitals, wastewater treatment plants and detention facilities.

GIS Services: Our Geographic Information Systems (GIS), Global Positioning Systems (GPS) and Computer Aided Design (CAD) services allow us to visualize the planning, analysis, design, implementation and maintenance for a variety of our industrial clients.

stormwater.Stormwater Management during Construction: We develop SWPPPs for construction projects, focusing on appropriate Best Management Practices to prevent ecological damage and protect natural systems.

Best Management Practices: As part of the stormwater management process, Normandeau applies cutting-edge technologies that enhance environmental benefits, creating and restoring wetlands where possible and providing sustainable solutions to water management challenges. During the process of BMP design and development we will assist in applying these restoration efforts to regulatory requirements for mitigation.

Compliance Services: We assist clients with stormwater and process water regulatory compliance. In addition to technical compliance we help with negotiations of supplemental environmental projects, mitigations, and enforcement penalties.

Hydrology and Hydraulics: Best Management Practices (BMPs) require evaluation of rainfall runoff generation and flow assessment. Our water resources engineers are versed in computational analyses including TR-55, HEC-RAS, HydroCAD and other analytical tools.

Erosion and Sediment Control: We help prioritize erosion and sediment controls in just that order, emphasizing keeping soils in-place but protecting areas from receiving sediments as a second line of defense. Our staff prepares erosion and sediment control plans under the guidance of Normandeau Certified Professionals in Erosion and Sediment Control (CPESC) and a Normandeau licensed Professional Engineer.
