County Installs Stormwater Monitoring With Real-time Reporting

Holder Construction, Inc. of Atlanta was contracted to expand Gwinnett County's Cultural and Civic Center in Georgia. According to EPA's regulations and state laws, projects such as this require a NPDES Construction Activity permit.To address the monitoring side of this compliance issue, Holder Construction regularly uses traditional stormwater monitoring systems. However, in this instance, they decided to implement both a traditional system and a newer system, created through a partnership of WRT and NIVIS LLC. Holder Construction did so in order to compare results and operational efficiencies between both types of units.

Controlling Hospital Grease, Sludge Discharges

One of the major problem areas in St Petersburg, Florida has two hospitals and a nursing home that discharge to a common sewer line. Historically, the city had to clean this section of the sewer line at least four times a year to avoid blockages and sanitary sewer overflows. Working together, the city and one of the hospitals took action to control the discharge of grease from the hospital's facilities and to reduce the costs of maintenance for both the city and the hospital.

Stormwater Retrofitting to Protect Drinking Water Reservoirs from the Impacts of Urban Runoff - Part 2

The Kensico Reservoir Stormwater Management Program is designed to reduce fecal coliform bacteria and turbidity delivered to the reservoir by controlling and treating stormwater. The first phases of the project, assessment of the watershed, site selection and the screening and design of stormwater control and treatment facilities, were completed in July 1998. Facility construction began in the spring of 1999 and completed early in 2001. DEP has committed to monitoring and evaluating facility performance and maintaining the facilities.
