Indemnifying Your Exceedances

Storm Water Systems offers two variations of the StormPROOF™ Treatment System: Basic or Indemnified.

Our Basic System is proven to meet Numeric Action Levels (NALs) in accordance with the California State Water Resources Control Board (SWRCB) Industrial General Permit (IGP) through a series of processes taken in partnership between SWS and our customer. After system installation and commissioning, sample results are reviewed over a period of weeks or months. Our processes are used to ensure that the system optimally works and meets NALs. Together, we undertake the processes needed to achieve NALs, which may require time, materials and financial resources on the part of both Storm Water Systems and our customer.

Our experience has shown that any exceedance is remedied by one or more of the following methods:

  1. Purchaser agrees to reasonable BMPs and cleanliness practices in contract
  2. Proprietary process to locate any removal deficiency
  3. Analyzing solids
  4. Analyzing for dissolved metals and other variables
  5. Adjusting proprietary chemical components
  6. Cleaning or changing filtration elements
  7. Using finer filtration elements
  8. Backwashing filters
  9. Additional change to media

Our Indemnified StormPROOF Treatment System is guaranteed to meet NALs and indemnified from litigation and regulatory penalties. We follow the same processes as above, leading to successfully meeting NALs for Indemnified Systems, but these processes are taken at the sole responsibility and discretion of Storm Water Systems, with the exception of the process that requires our customer to maintain a certain level of cleanliness on site to avoid debris and solids from clogging the system.

As California’s leading provider of Advanced BMPs for storm water management and compliance, we can help you write your legally required action plan, then implement it.
