Relentlessly protecting our waterways
Tailored SWPP & SWPP related Services
EPS is a Nevada based small business providing SWPPP and SWPP related services throughout Nevada. Clients range from state and federal government agencies to private entities, small and large developers. EPS has been installing and maintaining Erosion Control Best Management Practices (BMPs) in Nevada for over 16 years. BMPs, including temporary erosion and sediment control devices, are implemented in a fast and effective manner.
Using cost-saving strategies, EPS implements BMPs that are reusable, which is important on dynamic construction sites. For land development, residential communities and habitat restoration projects, your EPS Certified Erosion Stormwater Inspector (CESWI) can create a BMP plan specifically for your project.
Developing site-specific SWPPP designs combined with environmental knowledge, help ensure regulatory agency compliance while minimizing SWPPP implementation and maintenance costs. Services can be tailored to fit client specific requirements or budget constraints.
Zero Liability Guarantee means we are backing you our client, as your partner, in compliance to protect our waterways for a cleaner Nevada. The signs you see on jobsites are a testimony to the protection provided by our services.

EPS Qualified SWPPP Developers : QSD
Your EPS Qualified SWPPP Developers (QSD) meet with you to understand the unique demands of each construction project. Each SWPPP, though sharing similarities in implementation, is approached individually and tailored to each project and to each client. All things are considered, from location and access, to soil conditions and terrain, to resources and supply, to timeline and budgetary concerns, so each SWPPP is on point, on time and on target.
EPS Certified Compliance Inspectors of Stormwater : CCIS
Your EPS Certified Compliance Inspectors of Stormwater (CCIS) are there to inspect all aspects of SWPPP BMPs and erosion control. Digital inspection reports, accessible within each EPS sign on-site from any mobile device, keep you up to date and compliant. With certified training, ground level SWPPP experience, as well as real-world construction knowledge, EPS inspectors know exactly what you need to stay in compliance, and how to best implement it.
EPS Qualified SWPPP Practitioners : QSP (Ground Crew)
Our EPS ground crew of Qualified SWPPP Practitioners (QSP) are the hard working trained individuals you see in the field installing and maintaining each and every BMP that makes up your effective SWPPP. From wattles to excavation, hydroseed to street sweeping, and everything in-between, our QSPs work together to keep your project in compliance and protect our waterways from stormwater pollution. EPS employs personnel that genuinely care about protecting our environment and the effects construction has on our precious water sources. Our EPS Ground Crew is at the heart of our service.
