Stormwater Certifications Simplifed

Request a Proposal


For over 20 years, Holland Engineering has inspected, cleaned, repaired and solved stormwater drainage systems throughout South Florida. Per Broward County Code, a Surface Water Management License Renewal permit must be filed every 5-years.


As you know, the proper function of your stormwater drainage system is required for your License Renewal with Broward County, and may include obligatory cleaning and/or repairs.

Surface Water Management License Renewal requirements and inspection includes:

  • Two (2) on-site inspections; the initial inspection, plus a final second inspection to verify that the cleaning and/or any repairs are completed and compliant.
  • A certification letter signed and sealed by a professional Florida-licensed civil engineer
  • Copies of the initial and final property inspection reports, operational activity log, or any other documents required for certification

Upon initial inspection, we identify all potential site deficiencies.  Based on our results, we will send you a proposal/contract for all necessary repairs and cleaning—while always giving you the best pricing possible.


Our simplified in-house process completes your Stormwater Certifications in its entirety.

Broward's Compliance

1. Initial on-site inspection: evaluating current conditions of your storm drainage system, obtaining basin sediments levels and taking pre-repair photographs documenting structural damages. We then submit our findings in a preliminary report mandated by Broward County.

2. Follow-up inspection: verifying all photographs reflect appropriate cleaning and that repairs to your system have been completed in compliance with County regulations. We then submit a final inspection report mandated by Broward County.

3. Cleaning/Repairs:  We complete your certification in its entirety. After having identified any property deficiencies, we'll send you a proposal detailing the necessary scope of work in order to be performed. We perform any/or all of your required cleaning & repairs.

4. Engineer's Certification:  Upon completion of repairs, we deliver all official documentation mandated by Broward County for you: a) a signed and sealed letter written by a Florida-licensed civil engineer, guaranteeing you are in compliance with County Codes and Ordinances. b) your Final Inspection Report.

5. Submittal Process:  Broward County requires submitting copies of the initial and final property inspection reports, as well as HEIS's approved operational activity log.



Your entire stormwater drainage system is required to be compliant with Broward County regulations, including but not limited to:


  • Cleaning of all drainage structures. Broward County requires drainage structures have less than 1 inch of sediment in each basin at the time of your license renewal


  • All surrounding drainage structures of asphalt/concrete apron basins must be in good condition


  • All large visible surface cracks must be repaired


  • All and/or any interior cracks inside the basins must be repaired (ie mudwork performed)
