Mapistry: Sims Metal Saves Thousands on Stormwater Permit (Case Study)

by Mapistry

Mapistry used on 7 sites for new IGP

For the new California Industrial Stormwater General Permit (IGP), Sims Metal Management (Sims) completed their site map and stormwater pollution prevention plan (SWPPP) using Mapistry.

Sims uses Mapistry to:

  1. Manage stormwater on seven sites in Northern California
  2. Make edits to maps in seconds
  3. Create maps for not only stormwater plans, but also Hazardous Materials Business Plans (HMBPs)
Mapistry has saved us thousands of dollars and countless hours to satisfy the requirements of all of our sites. Very user-friendly and convenient.
