Ferndale, WA stormwater pond
Your advocate for stormwater solutions
Stormwater system owners own expensive systems, but often do not know how their system works or how to maintain their systems and prevent water quality violations. Local governments are obligated by law to make sure that stormwater facilities are protecting water quality.
We provide independent residential and commercial evaluations of your system. This helps owners stay in compliance and out of trouble. We make sure that maintenance is targeted effectively over time to reduce costs and liability down the road.
Our knowledgeable stormwater team will conduct an independent evaluation of stormwater ponds, swales, rain gardens, and other infrastructure such as catch basins and vaults. Our reports meet all government requirements. We give clients a solid plan of action and peace of mind that their stormwater infrastructure is operating as it should.
We also provide public education services on stormwater. Our KES team is available to speak to business professionals about the latest stormwater requirements as well as Low Impact Development.
