Good Construction Management Benefits Everyone

Friday May 10, 2013 08:28 am

Construction activities have the potential to create pollution in our streets and bayous that cost us money. Water treatment, dredging, street cleaning, storm drain clogs can be costly and the general health of our bayous can be impaired. If mud is getting into the street or drains, the site may be in violation. Currently, sites under one acre are exempt from filing plans.

Clogged drains and pipes raise the flood risks of neighborhoods during disasters, torrential rains, and an average rain. Mud in the street can cause unsafe conditions. Mud in the bayous can jeopardize compliance with the Clean Water Act. Please review the management practices suggested in the attachments. Contact the permits department to report mud or debris that is not contained properly onsite.
