Storm Water Management Planning and Training

Storm Water Management Planning:
We offer services for local governments in compliance with EPA, State, and Local Government requirements. Our innovative, collaborative process produces an integrated, locally applicable Storm Water Management Plan, Ordinances, Codes, and Implementation Strategy for your community. We are committed to a unique, flexible, hands-on approach to planning. Our process is community-driven, with thoughtful, intentional interaction with local government representatives, citizen and stakeholders groups, and the development community at large.

Central to everything we do is our commitment to collaborative effort with all of the local governments we serve. We believe plans, ordinances and regulations are only effective if easily absorbed and administrated by local government.

Storm Water, Floodplain, and Development Management Programs drafted and adopted to address EPA, TDEC, FEMA, and Local Government requirements and Community Development goals are traditionally laden with difficult language (technical requirements aside), cumbersome administrative requirements, and little how-to guidance or resources. Local government and stakeholder concerns are rarely solicited or addressed and their input is rarely incorporated into the final product. Rather than approaching the process as a ‘government required’ set of regulations, we believe community needs and requirements are accomplished through an immersive, collaborative planning environment and venue. At the heart of our process is the desire for the community to understand their planning process, help tailor it to their own unique concerns, and ensure that local officials are confident in their ability to understand and apply the plans they help design.

Educational Materials and Training:
In keeping with our philosophy that a key component of support is education, we recently partnered with Middle Tennessee State University and the Tennessee Board of Regents University System to create course content for the MTSU ROCE Online MS4 Phase II Course Modules, helping local governments in Tennessee to achieve EPA MS4 Permit requirements.
