  • Storm drain inspection checklist requirements
  • The purpose of the storm drain inspection checklist
  • Benefits of using storm drain inspection checklist app

What are the requirements of a storm drain inspection checklist?

The requirements for a storm drain inspection checklist vary from property to property. However, some basic elements may remain the same in storm drain checklists, such as whether the stormwater drainage paths are clear, or whether hazardous materials like pesticides or reactive wastes are stored at the site. Large commercial and industrial properties have more intensive and location-specific requirements for storm drain inspection than residential properties. Every state releases its own stormwater inspection checklist according to the environmental conditions prevalent in the region.

Who uses a storm water inspection checklist and why?

Property owners, professional inspectors and area managers use a stormwater inspection checklist to perform general inspections of the property before and after a storm. It helps determine if additional BMPs (best management practices) of storm drainage are required at the property to protect it from stormwater damage.

Why use a storm drain inspection checklist app?

With the use of a storm drain inspection checklist app, you can easily do inspections of the property’s storm drains and gutters. The storm drain inspection app enables you to quickly and efficiently perform an electronic survey of the stormwater drainage system using your smartphone or mobile device.

You can use it for recording the odor, debris, water clarity, and debris in the water inlet system. Moreover, it provides you with the details on the prevailing weather conditions when you are performing inspection with precise geolocation of the storm drainage system. Plus, it has a photo capture feature that enables you to take a permanent visual record of the issue you may identify during an inspection.

You can easily customize app features to your specific requirements with a drag-and-drop interface, and integrate it with the assignments of records, which allow you to dispatch work orders directly to the field manager.
