Storm Water Compliance

StormWater Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP) Preparation

 

 

A StormWater Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP) is a site-specific, written document that:

 

  • Identifies potential sources of stormwater pollution at the construction site

  • Describes practices to reduce pollutants in stormwater discharges from the construction site.  Reduction of pollutants is often achieved by controlling the volume of stormwater runoff (e.g., taking steps to allow stormwater to infiltrate into the soil).

  • Identifies procedures the operator will implement to comply with the terms and conditions of a construction general permit.

StormWater Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP) Implementation

 

 

Most industrial stormwater permits require installation and implementation of control measures to minimize or eliminate pollutants in stormwater runoff from your facility.  The control measures you choose for your facility must be documented in your facility-specific StormWater Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP).  Evaluation of your stormwater management program will include inspection, visual assessments, and monitoring (i.e., sampling) of specified stormwater discharges.

 

Stormwater sampling provides quantitative (i.e., numeric) data to determine pollutant concentrations in runoff and, in turn, the degree to which your control measures are effectively minimizing contact between stormwater and pollutant sources, and the success of your stormwater control approach in meeting applicable discharge requirements or effluent limits.
