PWA developed a Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP) and provided QSP monitoring services for the Hollyhock Self-Help Housing Development Project in Sebastopol, California. This unique project developed by Burbank Housing, provides affordable housing to qualifying  first-time home buyers willing to make a significant contribution to the construction of their own homes under the supervision of Burbank's licensed contractors and tradesmen. Hollyhock homes are Build It Green certified and contain a number of design elements that reduce water use and conserve energy. The Hollyhock subdivision also features state-of-the-art, low impact development storm water drainage infrastructure that integrates permeable pavement, sidewalks, and a subsurface drainage system with a weir wall outfall that function to mimic the pre-construction hydrology of the project site. PWA QSD Randy Lew developed the SWPPP for this project and QSP Tara Zuroweste is responsible for ensuring SWPPP compliance by conducting required site inspections and ongoing reporting for the project.
