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.
