Depending on your state, inspections are usually required once every seven days and within twenty four hours of a rainfall greater than 0.5 inches in a twenty four hour period (blue sky to blue sky).
The inspection requires several points to be monitored, recorded and logged as well as attached to the SWPPP (where required).
A common error in inspections is leaving the work to non-certified or non-specialized entities that are not completely fulfilling all aspect of the inspections. This includes frequency, process, reporting and necessary follow-up.
With well over several dozen items that must be evaluated, inspections are a critical component to the builder, which places a greater need for the appropriate personnel to support such measures.
