Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plan

  • Site (Facility) Specific

  • Facility Staff all have a role in implementation


National stormwater discharge program

National Stormwater Discharge Program

  • Phased approach by EPA

    • Phase I – 1990 – large cities

    • Phase II – 1999 – smaller municipalities & “public bodies”


General permits under rhode island pollutant discharge elimination system

Storm Water Discharge Associated with Industrial Activity (Multi-Sector)

Storm Water Discharge fromSmall Municipal Separate Storm Sewer Systems (MS4)

GENERAL PERMITSunderRhode Island Pollutant Discharge Elimination System


General permit requirement

General Permit Requirement

  • Implement a site-specific Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP) developed for each facility with “industrial” activity


Swppp requirements

Facility Associated with a MS4

Section IV.B.6.b.5. of MS4 General Permit

(Good Housekeeping)

Multi-Sector

Section IV of Multi-Sector General Permit

SWPPP requirements

Swppp must describe practices to control pollutants

Good housekeeping practices

Preventive maintenance

Existing/planned BMPs for activities

How salt/sand piles are stored

Operating procedures re. fuels

Vehicle maintenance operations

Erosion controls

Other runoff management practices

Spill prevention & response procedures

Employee training

Swppp must describe procedures for evaluation of compliance

SWPPP must describe PROCEDURES FOR EVALUATION OF COMPLIANCE

  • Visual monitoring

  • Annual site inspections

  • Record keeping & reporting


Swppp must be amended

SWPPP must be AMENDED

  • as operations/materials/practices change
