Construction sites, because of their earth-disturbing and construction activities, have a high potential of generating runoff sediment and pollutants that can flow to rivers and other water bodies.
Here are some SWPPP basics:
- Any active construction site that typically disturbs more than 1 acre of land is legally required to have a SWPPP, or stormwater pollution prevention plan.
- A SWPPP is a detailed document that is a guide for the contractor and provides for monitoring programs designed to prevent stormwater pollution during construction activity.
- A property owner is held responsible for violations to stormwater pollution requirements and can be subject to substantial fees and penalties.
To help you get started quickly in requesting advice on your project SWPPP, please fill out the form on the right.
