Municipal Tools & Resources

The Municipal Construction Stormwater Site Inspection Toolkit was developed to assist municipal inspectors with more effectively tracking compliance with the municipal stormwater National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit.

The overall goal of this project was to improve the effectiveness of municipal construction site inspectors and provide a more consistent site inspection framework that can be implemented in other Washington jurisdictions.

The toolkit includes five checklists and two factsheets:

  • Initial Erosion and Sediment Control (ESC) Inspection (WordPDF)
  • Construction ESC Inspection (WordPDF)
  • Post-Construction ESC Inspection (WordPDF)
  • Construction of Permanent Stormwater Best Management Practices (BMPs)/Facilities Inspection (WordPDF)
  • Post-Construction of Permanent Stormwater BMPs/Facilities Inspection (WordPDF)
  • Implementation guidelines for Western Washington (PDF factsheet)
  • Implementation guidelines for Eastern Washington (PDF factsheet)

The toolkit also includes a set of templates and a guide for using the inspection checklists in Survey123:

  • Guide to Using the Municipal Construction Stormwater Site Inspection Toolkit Electronic Checklists (PDF)
  • Survey123 template for the Initial ESC Inspection checklist (XLSX)
  • Survey123 template for the Construction ESC Inspection checklist (XLSX)
