TFM’s Portsmouth division, MSC, is providing SWPPP inspections for NHDOT projects in the seacoast region.

MSC, a division of TFMoran, is providing Stormwater Inspection services for several high-profile NHDOT construction projects, including the Little Bay Bridge in Dover/Newington for R.S. Audley, Inc. and the highway work on Route 4 and Route 16 for Severino Trucking Co. in the same area.

SWPPP Monitors duties include daily weather forecast monitoring and recording, pre-storm, post-storm and weekly SWPPP inspections, weekly erosion control meeting attendance including preparation and distribution of meeting minutes. In addition to these services, MSC is also providing turbidity monitoring of construction stormwater discharges during rain events, as well as the design and monitoring of flocculation treatment systems used to reduce turbidity in accumulated stormwater to ensure construction site stormwater discharges are within NHDES compliance limits.

Working closely with the NHDOT, NHDES and contractors in the interest of stormwater pollution prevention and erosion control, MSC’s monitors reports are issued within 24 hours of the time of inspection and include pictures of findings, comments, new action items and resolved action items.

NHDOT Specifications require SWPPP Inspectors for their projects to be certified by a third-party organization (Envirocert International) as Certified Erosion, Sediment and Stormwater Inspectors  (CESSWI) or Certified Professionals in Erosion & Sediment Control (CPESC). The inspection and monitoring duties are being performed by three MSC engineers; Jack McTigue, P.E. CPESC, Jessica Winston, CESSWI and Chris Gagnon, CESSWI.
