Congratulations to Howell Construction
Howell Construction was inducted into the CSEP Program as a “Participating” member in August of 2020. This Company has developed strong Stormwater Management Plans, has implemented and maintained Best Management Practices onsite and has commitment and buy-in from the executive levels. They have consistently demonstrated a low potential for Stormwater Construction General Permit noncompliance and a reduced risk for causing negative impacts to receiving waters in Colorado.
The CSEP Advisory Board met on August 4, 2021, and unanimously voted that Howell Construction be promoted to the “Qualified” member status in the CSEP Program. AGC of Colorado is pleased with the efforts of this company’s teams and in conjunction with the entire Advisory Board would like to congratulate Howell Construction.
Howell Construction will join 14 other companies at the “Qualified” level in the CSEP Program.
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.
