Stormwater Housekeeping – Pollution Prevention Fail

A recent routine stormwater inspection on a shopping center site in Northern Virginia revealed how NOT to store de-icing materials.  Spotting housekeeping issues like this should be part of a comprehensive stormwater inspection. Catch the pollutants before they get into the stormwater system and you’ve prevented maintenance.  Proper storage would reduce the salt discharging into the receiving waters (a nice wet pond is choking just downstream) and reduce the amount (and cost) of deicing material required to manage snowfall.
