3 Reason Why MS4s Choose ComplianceGO for Stormwater Inspections

Managing stormwater inspections and documentation has always been a challenge for Municipal Separate Storm Sewer Systems (MS4s) and the private sector. Before ComplianceGO, these processes were scattered across different platforms, leading to confusion, wasted time, and instances of non-compliance. 

ComplianceGO has revolutionized this landscape by providing a unified, efficient, and user-friendly platform. This blog explores why dozens of MS4s use ComplianceGO and how it simplifies stormwater management.

The Problem with Traditional Stormwater Management

Traditional stormwater management methods often involve using multiple systems and tools to track inspections, document compliance, and manage data. This fragmented approach can lead to several issues:

  1. Confusion: With data spread across various platforms, it’s easy for important information to get lost or overlooked.
  2. Wasted Time: Navigating multiple systems is time-consuming and inefficient.
  3. Non-Compliance: Lack of centralized data management increases the risk of non-compliance with regulatory requirements.

These challenges necessitate a more streamlined, integrated solution.

ComplianceGo: A Unified Platform for Stormwater Management

ComplianceGo addresses these issues by connecting MS4s and the private sector on a single software platform. This integration ensures each party retains control while benefiting from shared capabilities.

1. Stormwater Specific Inspection Software to Track and Manage All MCMs

ComplianceGo is designed specifically for stormwater management, making it an ideal tool for tracking and managing all Minimum Control Measures (MCMs). The platform includes features tailored to the needs of MS4s:

  • IDDE (Illicit Discharge Detection and Elimination): Streamlined processes managing illicit discharges.
  • MS4 Facilities/Good Housekeeping: Efficient tracking of facilities and housekeeping practices.
  • Outfalls: Comprehensive management of outfall inspections.
  • Long Term: Tools for long-term monitoring and compliance.
