Sheboygan County needed Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plans (SWPPP) for its Highway Department maintenance facilities to meet the requirements of the Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4) permit through the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources. The MS4 permit regulates municipal stormwater drains, pipes and ditches that collect and discharge possibly polluted, untreated water into local creeks, lakes or ponds. The County hired Fehr Graham to create the plans for four Highway Department maintenance facilities based on on-site visits and state and federal regulations.
Our team visited the sites and identified possible points of contamination. Buildings for storing salt, trucks and plows are at each site. Because the trucks are maintained and fueled on-site, the SWPPP needed to address immediate cleanup of spills and prevention methods for runoff contamination. Our team identified Best Management Practices to minimize stormwater pollution and created site inspection procedures for implementation by the Highway Department.
Our team helped train and educate the Highway Department employees on the plan.
