Construction Site Inspection

Background

Construction site inspection is a way of making sure that grading activities are in compliance with an approved Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan(SWPPP), and ensuring that  Best Management Practices (BMPs) are correctly installed at the construction site. Proper site inspection prevents erosion, property damage, spillage and leakages, poor waste disposal, poor water quality and ensures public safety.
