Requirements for SWPPP

  1. Information for the Facility Operator.

In the SWPPP, the legal name of the facility operator, mailing address, and telephone number need to be on the document. This can be a person, public organization, firm, or another entity that meets the following criteria. They must have control over the site specifications, and have day-to-day operational control of the site to make sure that there is compliance with the permits and the Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plans.

 

  1. Site Information

When writing your SWPPP, you are required to have the project operators’ legal name and the complete street address for the construction site. If you are applying for more than one location with construction general permits, you can list the street addresses that the Storm Water Pollutions Prevent Plans will be used for. You can also use the same SWPPP, with different addresses if you are applying for multiple construction permits. If the construction site does not have a street address, you are required to indicate the general location of the site, and the longitude and latitude of the site, to the nearest 15 seconds at the center of the site.

 

  1. Construction Activity

An SWPPP will need a full description of the type of construction activity that will occur at the site. This includes what is being built, the size of the site, which includes the area that is disturbed around the building site and how the area is going to disturbed. You will also need to estimate the amount of runoff from both the pre-construction and post-construction conditions, along with soil and discharge quality from the site.

 

  1. Measures to Protect Threatened and Endangered Species

All SWPPP need to have lists of any threatened and endangered species or if there are critical habitats within the proximity of the construction site. The SWPPP requirements include if there is going to any effect on the species from the storm water discharge from the construction site. It is required that you implement all the measures to protect the species and habitats that are in your SWPPP.
