Construction and Installation

ECO Group provides construction and installation of certain types of Storm Water Management Systems. We can also meet all of your Pre-Construction Erosion Control needs as well as any post-construction maintenance and repairs. ECO Group is committed to our customers, our quality, and our environment.

Bio-Retention

Bio-retention is an up-land water quality and quantity control practice which uses the chemical biological and physical properties of plants, microbes, and soils for removal of pollutants from storm water runoff. Some of the processes that may take place in a bio-retention facility include: sedimentation, absorption, filtration, decomposition, and storage capacity. Bio-Retention facilities can be distributed across a development site which can result in smaller and more manageable sub-watersheds that aid in controlling runoff close to its source. ECO Group provides complete analysis, support, installation and maintenance of Bio-Retention systems for our clients.

Audit and Consultation

ECO Group offers audit and consultation services to ensure your stormwater facilities are compliant with the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES). The NPDES was created in 1972 under the Clean Water Act. It is responsible for controlling and regulating point sources of discharge of pollutants to water sources. NPDES main goal is to maintain, protect, and restore water quality. We perform the audit inspections using NPDES guidelines and will share our findings, along with recommendations with our clients. Recommendations might include a summary of necessary repairs and an ongoing maintenance program.
