Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plans (SWPPP)
Federal Clean Water Act regulations require stormwater discharges from construction activities be covered under a National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit. Any stormwater runoff generated from construction activities that disturb one or more acres and/or are part of a larger common plan of development are required to be covered by an NPDES permit.
When you are designing a project that falls under one of those categories or occurs within an area that is currently covered by an existing NPDES permit, a Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP) is required.
Our engineers and SWPPP designers will establish a comprehensive plan for existing and post-construction conditions of the site to identify potential sources of pollution and describe the implementation and management of practices to be used to reduce the pollutants in stormwater discharge.
Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan services include:
- SWPPP Plans and Specifications
- Notice of Intent (NOI)
- Public Notice of Stormwater Discharge/Proof of Publication
- Permit Fee
Erosion and sediment control management infractions can levy large fines from the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) and/or the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Providing a plan that includes protective cover on the soil surface, best management practices (BMP’s) to retain and filter sediment and proper runoff diversion, maximizes soil infiltration and captures sediment. Having a compliant, current and effective SWPPP plan helps you mitigate potential problems before construction begins.
