 While dumping chests of tea into the Boston Harbor on the night of the Boston Tea Party in 1773 may have been an iconic event of American History and the rumblings of the American Revolutionary War which led to our country’s formation, the continued dumping of things into the water ways of our nation, in 1969 led to the Cuyahoga River Fire which brought about the Clean Water Act in 1972.

 The founders of the Clean Water Act built into the regulation a mechanism to make sure that the storm water industry remains in constant flux. By incorporating the BAT/BCT standard for the selection and implementation of best management practices (BMPs), they set up an environment of evolutionary change for erosion and sediment control measures on construction sites. This evolution has been particularly evident at construction exits. In the storm water world, evolutionary steps do not happen very often, but we want to bring to the attention

 A good review is always a very useful and important thing. Think about how much reviews influence us—restaurant reviews, Amazon reviews, influencer reviews, and more. But better than all those reviews, is a good review of your facility. And it’s fast approaching the deadline for that review — or as it is technically called — the Annual Comprehensive Facility Compliance Evaluation and Annual Report. In this month’s edition of The Rain Events, we will be reviewing all you need to know about ACFCEs and Annual Reports to help you on yo
