About EnviroTech NPDES Services

EnviroTech NPDES Services was established in 2010 to provide professional stormwater education, industrial and construction site management for NPDES compliance, and technical support to public and private enterprises. Our involvement in construction and storm water quality issues dates back to the 1980s when our predecessor firm, Renaissance Gardens designed and installed landscape and erosion control projects.

Founder and erosion control specialist, David Franklin has over 35 years experience in the Green Industry and Stormwater Management sectors. As a result, EnviroTech NPDES Services has become a recognized expert in stormwater program development and implementation and has provided NPDES services nationally to public agencies, builders and contractors seeking practical and cost effective solutions while preserving water quality. Since 2001, Mr. Franklin has played a major role in the CPESC (Certified Professional in Erosion and Sediment Control) program and continues to serve the CPESC Program to this day.

EnviroTech NPDES Services has the ability to support its clients as a full service provider or as part of a multi-disciplined team on projects of all sizes and complexities. Over the years, EnviroTech NPDES Services has contracted or subcontracted with many local agencies such as The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans), Department of Fish and Game, Department of Forestry, Cal Fire, the Counties of Napa, Monterey, and Marin and more.

EnviroTech NPDES Services’ commitment to professional ethics, reliability and diligence is the basis for successfully performing the required services for each of our projects. Our technical design and field experience combined with our NPDES educational presentation skills will provide an important resource to you.


What makes working with EnviroTech NPDES Services worthwhile?

Inspiring Solutions to Environmental Problems.

Solutions from years of working on the ground; in the field.
Specifying something because everyone else is doing it, isn’t a rationale. We research the products and apply the principles that control erosion and manage stormwater.

Solutions that protect the environment both economically and effectively.
We run the numbers. Each client with a jobsite, with an industrial facility deserves a unique, thought-out assessment.

Solutions that inspire our students to affect change in their jobs and on their career paths.
By sharing golden nuggets of insight and connecting the dots of compliance, we help students form a vision for their futures.

Solutions that improve our products and services.
Sure, we’ve been doing this for decades, but we still like using all the new bells and whistles like everyone else!

Solutions that positively influence the industry.
When the Qualified Person certification process needed to be re-examined, we spoke up, raised questions and offered solutions. When Covid-19 arrived, we prompted an inquiry that resulted in online training being allowed... statewide!

Solutions by volunteering and donating our time and resources.
Volunteering in the Galapagos, the Amazon and Vietnam is one thing, but we spend PRO BONO hours every month helping big and small projects and clients understand the compliance process, the certification process etc.
