Congratulations to Brinkman Construction, Inc. and PCL Construction Services, Inc.
The Colorado Stormwater Excellence Program (CSEP) Board of Directors would like to congratulate Brinkman Construction, Inc., and PCL Construction Services, Inc. for their induction into the CSEP Program as a “Participating” member. Brinkman Construction, Inc., and PCL Construction Services, Inc. join 11 other companies in the CSEP Program. With the same dedication these other 11 companies have shown to become “Qualified” members, we are confident that both companies will be elevated to “Qualified” member status after the required qualification period.
The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) will routinely inspect their jobsites to ensure stormwater compliance. By developing and implementing strong Stormwater Management Plans, maintaining Best Management Practices onsite, and having commitment and buy-in at the executive level, Brinkman Construction, Inc., and PCL Construction Services, Inc. will demonstrate a high potential for Stormwater Construction compliance, and reduced risk of negative impact to receiving waters in Colorado.
Congratulations, and thank you for being part of the Colorado Stormwater Excellence Program!
Qualifying for CSEP Benefits and Incentives
The CSEP Advisory Board recognizes two performance tiers that have an impact on the level of incentives available to a CSEP participating company. The two company performance tiers are titled "Participating" and "Qualified". At the completion of the CSEP program year, a company's average performance score will place them into one of these two performance tiers.
Company performance scores are compiled during CSEP monthly audits for all CDPS permitted projects during the course of the CSEP program year. To be eligible to receive a "qualified" designation, a minimum of three months of program performance data must have been recorded during the previous year. The CSEP Advisory Board retains the authority to change a participant's performance category based on recent performance results if deemed in the best interest of the CSEP and an accurate identification of the participant's level of compliance and environmental protection.
