Our clients include Fortune 500 companies, small and mid-size local contractors, engineering firms and Federal, State and Local agencies. Our plans and field designs have been approved by the EPA, the Regional Water Quality Board, the Department of Wildlife, Fish and Game and the Army Corps of Engineers. We work to ensure your agency has exactly what is needed.

Ground Service Technology, Inc. was formed in 2001 to provide high quality erosion control construction services to private sector and public sector clients. Our company gained an outstanding reputation by focusing on excellence in customer service. As a result, GST grew rapidly and began expanding services to include field inspection, water quality monitoring, and preparation of all SWPPP-related documents. In response to the needs of the clients, staff was expanded further to include highly qualified and experienced professionals that complement our original erosion control services. We are proud to now provide our clients with full professional services including civil engineering, landscape design, municipal planning, and legal services.

Celebrating our 11 year anniversary, we can proudly boast that no site under our care and supervision has ever received a fine!

With a professional staff that has extensive experience working in the public sector, GST can assist government agencies with engineering and landscape design, plan and permit application review, determining entitlements and conditions of approval, and staff augmentation. In addition, we can provide construction management and inspection services for CIP and private development projects.

Our Stormwater Compliance Section staff has all required credentials to perform construction and industrial site inspections, prepare required reports, and ensure compliance with the Regional Water Quality Control Board and the local agency's JURMP.

Ground Service Technology, Inc.

With fines reaching well in excess of $30,000 per day for non-compliance, it has never been more important to choose the right company to design, engineer, inspect, install and ensure compliance with NPDES, SWPPP and Dust Control requirements.

GST is the right choice.
