Using the Inspection Report
This inspection report is designed to be customized according to the BMPs and conditions at
your site. For ease of use, you should take a copy of your site plan and number all of the
stormwater BMPs and areas of your site that will be inspected. A brief description of the BMP
or area should then be listed in the site-specific section of the inspection report. For example,
specific structural BMPs such as construction site entrances, sediment ponds, or specific areas

When conducting the inspection, walk the site by following your site map and numbered
BMPs/areas for inspection. Also note whether the overall site issues have been addressed
