Developing Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plans
Stormwater runoff from construction sites can cause significant harm to our rivers, lakes, and coastal waters. A stormwater pollution prevention plan (SWPPP) is required by the construction general permit and will help prevent stormwater pollution. A SWPPP is more than just a sediment and erosion control plan. It describes all the construction site operator’s activities to prevent stormwater contamination, control sedimentation and erosion, and comply with the requirements of the Clean Water Act.
This course provides guidance to construction site operators that need to prepare a SWPPP in order to receive NPDES permit coverage for their stormwater discharges. It presents the steps for developing and implementing an effective SWPPP.
This course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:
- Identify potential sources of stormwater pollution at the construction site
- Understand practices to reduce pollutants in stormwater discharges from the construction site
- Know procedures to comply with the terms and conditions of a construction general permit
- BMPs to use to comply with NPDES permit
