Easy-to-maintain stormwater management is important for businesses

Watershed developed low-cost, easy-to-maintain stormwater management solutions that meet regulatory standards for Pike Industries. Pike Industries is one of the largest sand, gravel, and asphalt producers in New England. Sand, gravel and asphalt mining and production operations are in the business of mining – not in the business of managing stormwater runoff and controlling erosion.

Under the guidelines of the Vermont Multi-Sector General Permit, most industrial activities are required to have a stormwater runoff management and erosion control plan in place. Watershed, with years of experience in managing stormwater in urban, suburban, rural, residential, municipal, and industrial settings, was Pike Industries’ choice to manage their permitting and monitoring needs.

Watershed worked closely with Pike to meet daily operations needs and also the regulatory standards. Watershed also ensures that permit documents are in place, that water quality monitoring and analysis is completed, and that inspection and reporting is filed in a timely manner.

Key outcomes of the project

  • Pike Industries has permit documents
  • Low-cost, easy-to-maintain stormwater management solutions are in place
  • State stormwater management regulations are met
