Monitoring Program

Mapistry’s comprehensive monitoring program brings the best of our software (easy-to-use maps, mobile inspection forms, automatic rain logging, and real-time tracking) and our highly qualified staff (on-site evaluations, training, and answers to your toughest questions). Throughout the year, Mapistry is by your side analyzing sample results, suggesting BMPs, evaluating your program, and submitting your sampling and annual reports. For next-generation stormwater monitoring, check out the main components and pricing options.

Stormwater Program Audit

How sure are you that your SWPPP is accurate? Are you sampling correctly? Are your BMPs too expensive? Making sure your industrial stormwater program is cost-effective, meets your permit requirements, and is efficiently run is a crucial part of a successful compliance program. Mapistry’s stormwater experts come to your site; evaluate your Best Management Practices (BMPs), monitoring records, Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP) and site map; and conduct a site walk. At the end of the audit, you will know your potential deficiencies, the next steps, and where cost savings can be achieved. (Included in the Monitoring Program)

SMARTS Management

Ahhh! Still tearing your hair out dealing with SMARTS. With the Mapistry team by your side, you won’t be alone in the fight. We take care of data uploads, ad hoc reports (your sampling results), annual reports, notices of termination (NOT), No Exposure Certificates (NEC), and more. Our team can troubleshoot your problems and talk to the Water Board about getting your issues quickly addressed. (Included in the Monitoring Program)

Permit/NOI Filing

Filing for a stormwater permit via a Notice of Intent (NOI) can be complicated depending on the state’s requirements. Mapistry can prepare the necessary permit documents, including SWPPP and site map, and submit them to the proper state agency for your company.

SWPPP Preparation

A SWPPP is the backbone of your stormwater program, as it gives your company the framework for how BMPs will be implemented and samples collected depending on the potential pollutant sources. Creating a SWPPP that meets the permit requirements yet does not overwhelm your staff is an art. Mapistry’s artists (aka stormwater consultants) come to your site to gather the necessary information and prepare the SWPPP for you. If you want to do it yourself with a little guidance from a stormwater Picasso, check out our amazing SWPPP builder.

Site Map Creation/Updates

Like a good treasure map, a stormwater site map can lead you to gold (or at least a storm drain). Based on a site visit by our stormwater consultants and deep knowledge of stormwater permit requirements, Mapistry gets you in compliance with an easy-to-understand site map. With our own easy-to-use mapping software, you can even do it yourself, or let us get it started, and you take over the updates.

Level 1 Evaluation & Report

If your facility has reached Exceedance Response Action (ERA) Level 1 in California due to exceedances of the Numeric Action Levels (NALs), you are required to have a QISP (Qualified Industrial Stormwater Practitioner) conduct a site evaluation, prepare an ERA report, and conduct stormwater team training. However, you don’t have to worry, because Mapistry’s experienced QISPs have helped hundreds of facilities with their ERA Level 1 reports. Our QISPs will complete the site evaluation, report, and stormwater team training and get the required submittals into SMARTS for you. In addition, we support you throughout the year as you work back towards baseline status.

Level 2 Action Plan & Report

When your stormwater sampling results still exceed the NALs, after being in ERA Level 1, you enter ERA Level 2. Mapistry's QISPs will prepare your ERA Level 2 Action Plan, including tasks and schedule, to meet the first deadline. Our professional engineers (PEs) will design and evaluate the advanced BMPs you need (a PE is required by the permit) and our QISPs and PEs will prepare your ERA Level 2 Technical Report after your BMPs are implemented. If the exceedances are due to natural background or non-industrial sources, our team can conduct the investigations and prepare the correct Technical Report.

BMP Evaluation & Design

Have you been having issues meeting the NAL (Numeric Action Levels) set forth by the IGP? It is most likely due to BMPs (Best Management Practices) your facility has implemented. Mapistry offers BMP evaluation and design to assist in getting your stormwater samples below NALs. We'll help you find cost-effective BMPs that reduce the pollutants in your stormwater. We don’t get a commission from vendors, and we don’t sell BMPs ourselves, so we always have your best interests at heart.

Treatment System Evaluation and Design

Some stormwater issues require a facility to go above and beyond minimum and non-structural BMPs. Our stormwater experts can dig into your site’s problems and existing BMPs, and work with you to find a treatment system that works, but does not cost you a small island. We wrote the state regulations on how to evaluate treatment BMPs and were the third-party evaluator for lab and field testing of many major treatment system manufacturers. Sorry if we geek out over treatment systems, but that is what you are paying us to do.

Staff Training

Understanding the requirements of your permit and how to most effectively implement them can be tough. In a classroom or on a site, Mapistry’s skilled trainers really shine as they break down difficult-to-understand concepts into practical applications that can readily be implemented. Whether it is training your stormwater team on how to collect samples and calibrate a pH meter or getting your mechanics to understand the risks of lawsuits and how they can help every day with sweeping, Mapistry’s trainers can get the toughest audience to come away feeling excited about stormwater. With thousands trained each year, we have the experience and skills to help you meet a core requirement of your permit: training. (Included in the Monitoring Program)

Annual Report Preparation

Not sure how to answer all those questions in the annual report you need to submit to the state? Don't worry! With all your data organized in Mapistry, we can get on the phone with you and walk you through it in a matter of minutes! (Included in the Monitoring Program)

Lab Selection & Coordination

Not sure which lab to use? Not happy with the prices you're getting from your current lab? Let us help! Did you know that many labs will even pick up your samples? We even help you decode your lab results once they come back. (Included in the Monitoring Program)

QISP Services

Our QISPs can help you as a new permit filer, when you need a potential pollutant source assessment for 303(d) listed receiving waters. Mapistry QISPs also can prepare your Level 1 and Level 2 ERA Reports, Notice of Intent (NOI), No Exposure Certificate (NEC), and Notice of Termination (NOT).
