STORMWATER REVIEW

At McMillen Engineering, we have extensive experience in stormwater management. Our team understands the importance of minimizing the environmental impact and ensuring regulatory compliance in stormwater management projects.

 

By considering factors such as rainfall patterns, site topography, and soil conditions, we design customized solutions that effectively manage stormwater runoff. Our expertise includes the design of drainage systems that efficiently collect and convey stormwater, as well as the implementation of retention ponds to store excess water.

We also prioritize erosion control measures to prevent soil erosion and protect the surrounding environment. Our team will work closely with you to understand your specific needs and requirements, then design and implement a stormwater management system plan tailored to your project.

Informing residents about stormwater management is key for environmental awareness, regulation compilance, property damage prevention, and community health. At McMillen Engineering, Inc. we’re helping municipalities communicate the importance of proper systems and their environmental effects with residents through our Stormwater Management Standards and Application Packet.

CODE ENFORCEMENT OFFICER

At McMillen Engineering, our code enforcement officers (also known as building inspectors) ensure that all local building codes, zoning regulations, and other ordinances are strictly followed within a specific jurisdiction. Their primary role is to enforce these codes and regulations in order to maintain the safety, functionality, and overall integrity of buildings and properties.

We conduct thorough inspections of various structures, including residential, commercial, and industrial properties. During these inspections, we carefully assess the adherence to building codes and identify any violations or non-compliance issues. In cases where violations are found, code enforcement officers have the authority to issue citations and penalties.

 

Our building inspectors also work closely with property owners to address any non-compliance issues and ensure that necessary corrective actions are taken. We provide guidance and assistance to help property owners rectify any violations and bring their properties up to the required standards.

We take code enforcement seriously at McMillen Engineering. Our code enforcement officers play a critical role in creating and maintaining safe and livable communities for residents and businesses.
