What is Hydro-Seeding?

 

Hydro-Seeding typically consists of a mixture of water, seed, wood cellulose fiber, fertilizer and a tackifier.  The slurry is then applied  to protect exposed soil from erosion. Hydro-Seeding can also be used for establishing all types of turf grass or wildflowers. We will help you comply with your SWPPP!

Hydro-seeding

 

Hydro-seeding is a process of combining nutrient enriched mulch, water, and native plant or grass seed to create a mixture that is then applied to an area where vegetation is desired. Hydro-seeding is a form of installing vegetation...

3-Step

 

The 3-Step Method utilizes three separate material applications. First, a layer of hydro-mulch slurry containing native or turf seed with fertilizer is evenly distributed along the slope or hillside. The second step is a shield layer of mechanically blown straw, applied to protect...

What is Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plan?

In 1972, the Federal Water Pollution Control Act (also referred to as the Clean Water Act [CWA]) was amended to provide that the discharge of pollutants to waters of the United States from any point source is unlawful unless the discharge is in compliance with an NPDES (National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System) permit. The 1987 amendments to the CWA added Section 402(p) which establishes a framework for regulating municipal and industrial storm water discharges under the NPDES Program. On November 16, 1990, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) published final regulations that establish storm water permit application requirements for specified categories of industries. The regulations provide that discharges of storm water to waters of the United States from construction projects that encompass five (5) or more acres of soil disturbance are effectively prohibited unless the discharge is in compliance with an NPDES Permit. Regulations (Phase II Rule) that became final on December 8, 1999 expand the existing NPDES program to address storm water discharges from construction sites that disturb land equal to or greater than one (1) acre. While federal regulations allow two permitting options for storm water discharges (individual permits and General Permits), the SWRCB has elected to adopt only one statewide General Permit at this time that will apply to all storm water discharges associated with construction activity, except from those on Tribal Lands, in the Lake Tahoe Hydrologic Unit, and those performed by the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans). Construction on Tribal Lands is regulated by an USEPA permit, the Lahontan Regional Water Control Board adopted a separate NPDES permit for the Lake Tahoe Hydrologic Unit, and the SWRCB adopted a separate NPDES permit for Caltrans projects. This General Permit requires all dischargers where construction activity disturbs one acre or more, to develop and implement a Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP) which specifies Best Management Practices (BMPs) that will prevent all construction pollutants from contacting storm water and with the intent of keeping all products of erosion from moving off site into receiving waters.
