Municipalities Stormwater Pollution Prevention

Municipalities Stormwater Management


Across the country, municipalities provide citizens with the basic services they expect from their local government. With so many facilities and services provided for the public, municipalities face concerns related to capturing pollutants and hazardous chemical spills as well as enacting proper stormwater management protocol. City fueling stations, sanitation services and other municipal facilities must be prepared to address these difficulties, or else face consequences for non-compliance to state, EPA and SPCC regulations. Municipal facilities are targets for inspection by state, and federal governing agencies making your facilities held to a higher level scrutiny. CF-S’s highly experienced team is here to help you face these difficulties with certainty and 100% compliance.

If your facility has an Oil Water Separator (OWS), we can show you how you can cut the costly servicing of this critical tool in half and bring about much needed awareness to your facility operations. Not many Safety products can lay claim to reducing annual maintenance cost, CF-S products can and will free up operations around your facility to utilize more of your operations than ever before.

We at CF-S have also worked with Municipalities and Governing bodies to help develop codes and processes that make sense and serve the overall goal of maintaining clean stormwater runoff within their communities. Sometimes implementing key practices and products into governing codes or the permitting process can ensure that facilities within the community can better achieve the overall goal of clean stormwater being released from their outflows.

At Containment & Filtration Solutions, our team understands your risk for spills, chemical residue, sediment and trash contamination that contribute to watershed failures. That being said, CF-S is happy to provide products that complement your regulations for existing best management practices (BMP’s) to offer leading-edge SPCC solutions and EPA compliance for stormwater runoff, in turn strengthening your chain of safety one link at a time. CF-S offers top-of-the-line containment and filtration products that offer 100% compliance to EPA and SPCC regulations.

CF-S has the drainage solutions for your facility.

Dangerous Chemicals in Municipalities

It’s a given that municipal facilities must use numerous chemicals that produce industrial waste on a regular basis. From fueling and cleaning city transportation vehicles to performing routine upkeep and maintenance tasks, municipal activities pose environmental risks when the sediment and chemicals involved are washed away into the facilities’ drainage systems and enter surrounding watersheds. Some of these environmentally hazardous wastes include:

  • Ignitable wastes
  • Oil and grease
  • Chlorinated hydrocarbons
  • Acetone
  • Industrial wastewater
  • Paint waste

These and other materials municipalities utilize can severely impact environmental safety and come with large compliance fines. This being the case, it is essential to contain spills and hazardous stormwater in order to ensure compliance. That’s where Containment & Filtration Solutions can lend a helping hand.
