Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plans
The NPDES regulations require that a Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan be written for each industrial facility that has been issued a stormwater discharge permit. A typical Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan, or SWPPP, is a site-specific document witten for an individual facility. A SWPPP will include the following components:
- Site Map showing outfalls, industrial activities, exposed pollutant sources, and drainage areas
- Description of facility industrial activities
- Description of exposed industrial activities and previous spills
- Identification of Non-Stormwater Discharges
- Identification of Illicit Connections
- Procedures for eliminating non-authorized discharges
- Risk Assessment and Feasibility Study
- Description of existing stormwater management and water quality controls
- Description of proposed stormwater management and water quality controls
- Outfall Monitoring Procedures
- Training Guidelines
- Schedule of Implementation
- Required corporate signatures
Facilities with industrial-type activities, but not subject to current NPDES regulations, may desire to develop a stormwater management program to improve the runoff quality from the site or to mitigate quality or quantity-related problems. Most states issue permits to their Departments of Transportation that require a SWPPP for the DOT maintenance yards, equipment depots, and salt storage barns. General Aviation airports and National Guard facilities (e.g., OMS, MATES, RTS) should obtain Permits and develop SWPPPs.
