Ongoing maintenance is critical to the performance of every stormwater system. Without regular maintenance, the system will eventually fail due to buildup and structural issues, and routine upkeep can prevent costly rehabilitative and restorative repairs.
R+R offers comprehensive maintenance and regular servicing solutions to ensure your stormwater systems operate correctly, extend the life of your investment, and avoid costly NOVs.
Maintenance is typically the responsibility of the property owner, and whether the property has an aboveground or underground stormwater system, the objectives remain the same: ensuring the system meets requirements for water quantity (the volume of water stored in and leaving the site) and water quality (the chemical, biological, and physical composition).
Aboveground SCMs (BMPs) can vary depending on the needs of the site, and each requires a different type of stormwater maintenance. With a proper understanding of the system on the site, a proactive maintenance plan for any aboveground system will include:
Underground SCMs are engineered to convey rainwater away from impervious surfaces of the site through a storm sewer system, which will require regular maintenance to ensure proper function. Common underground SCM maintenance plans include:

It has been made dramatically and tragically clear in recent years that our stormwater infrastructure along the Gulf Coast is in need of considerable upgrades. Stormwater control measure (SCM) inspections are becoming more widely accepted for business owners and property managers in eastern Texas and Louisiana as the one-hundred-year flood becomes more frequent.
