Public Education & Outreach
Getting information to the public has never been easier than with NPDESPro. You have a large group of people that you need to communicate with, and NPDESPro makes it easy. Create audiences based on similarities such as property type, business type, area of the city, watershed, etc. so you can target communication to them. Now, use NPDESPro’s powerful email system to send educational materials to your audiences. You can even track open rates and click rates so you know exactly the impact your communications are having in your MS4.
NPDESPro lets you schedule, invite, and record public education events such as storm drain stenciling, booths at community events, and classes you put on. Create the event, send the invitations, take photos, and record your history of getting the public involved with NPDESPro.
Illicit Discharge Detection & Elimination
With NPDESPro, IDDE has never been easier. Record IDDE inspections independently or record them while performing another type of inspection in the application. Need to do routine outfall inspections? NPDESPro does that as well and allows you to record a history of compliance and to track exceedances in each watershed so you can investigate sources. Track pollutant levels, temperature, pH, and more. If you find an exceedance, flag the entire watershed so inspectors can be on the lookout for sources of pollutants during their regular inspections.With NPDESPro’s full mapping capability, you can quickly see IDDE “hot spots” and how they relate to one another and to your MS4’s outfalls.
Management of Construction Site Runoff
NPDESPro’s construction module allows you to perform construction inspections both as the oversight agency as well as the CESCL. Plus, NPDESPro allows you to give a limited license to contractor’s working in your MS4 so they can record their CESCL inspections easily, allowing you to see their work as soon as they complete it. Your inspection and their inspections populate your Construction Site Runoff dashboard and allow you to quickly be informed on the issues being tackled in the field by your staff and the private contractors operating in your municipality.
Management of Post-Construction Site Runoff
NPDESPro manages post-construction inspections and tracks compliance for each site in your MS4 and for municipally-owned sites as well. Communication is simple with fully-customizable templates that you configure to adapt to your MS4’s processes. Once the inspections are complete, determine compliance level, send the email notice, and schedule the follow up. NPDESPro allows you to perform several types of post-construction inspections so you can track inspections of individual storm structures, industrial sites, and business/operational inspections NPDESPro also allows you to track your inspection numbers against oversight agency requirements or your own internal goals. Need to confirm that you have inspected a certain percentage of inspections each year? NPDESPro makes it easy.
Good Housekeeping in Municipal Operations
NPDESPro’s Good Housekeeping module allows you to manage and track municipal contracts for storm drain cleaning, street sweeping, or any other good housekeeping action you are taking. Need to get bids – no problem with NPDESPro. Send out RFPs right from within the application.
Robust capabilities, intuitive interface+
