Easy Inspection. Easy Maintenance.

Easy Inspection

One of the advantages of BaySeparator is that its design offers unobstructed access for pollutant inspection and removal.  By opening either manhole cover, trapped pollutants can easily be seen from the surface, making confined space entry unnecessary.  Inspection can be performed though visual observation and by measuring sediment levels.

Normally when the accumulated sediments in either structure reach a height of two feet from the manhole floor, maintenance should be performed on the system.

The maintenance cycle typically falls into an annual pattern given normal loadings and sizing.  Inspection of the system is recommended quarterly for the first year or more to determine the appropriate cycle based on site characteristics.

Four Easy Steps to Maintaining BaySeparator

1. The first step involves quarterly inspections and possible maintenance of each BaySeparator you have installed.  All permits issued by the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) require an MS4 to ensure adequate long-term operation and maintenance of all BMPs per EPA rule §122.34(b)(5) of the Clean Water Act.  This ruling simply means that every BaySeparator must be inspected and/or maintained on a scheduled basis.  BaySeparator, like any other BMP, must be inspected quarterly and maintained yearly, or more frequently if there is evidence of a chemical spill, more than two feet of sediment has accumulated, or there is a significant amount of oil noticeable in the unit.

Scheduled maintenance ensures that your BaySeparator system will continue to function correctly and efficiently, yielding optimum performance and retaining maximum value.

2. It's easy to save money after installing BaySeparator.  We have pre-negotiated a reduced rate with several storm sewer maintenance service providers.  We will assist you in getting the best possible price from them and then forward the contract to you.  All that is left for you to do is fax the contract back or mail it to BaySaver Technologies, Inc.

3. By choosing BaySeparator from BaySaver Technologies you’ve assured yourself of installing a stormwater treatment system that complies with every measure of Phase II (§122.34(b)(5)) of the Clean Water Act.  Thank you for your business and ensuring your compliance.

The Clean Water Act is the primary Federal statute governing the restoration of our nation's waterways. Phase II (§122.34(b)(5)) of the Clean Water Act states that all MS4 regulated entities building after March 2003 must implement a plan to treat stormwater runoff. This includes maintaining the BMP treatment solution. To do otherwise, even in ignorance, may invite the possibility of large fines and penalties.

4. As a value added service to our customers, BaySaver Technologies will keep a copy of the inspection and maintenance records at our headquarters.  This keeps all of your maintenance documentation in one place, making everything readily available when regulatory agencies require proof of compliance.
