Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan
Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP) is a written document with supporting hydrology and hydraulic calculations and engineered drawings that identifies the conditions that must be met for the pre and post development conditions that must be met to ensure that all of the NYS DEC requirements are met.
What Does A SWPPP Include?
A developed SWPPP typically includes information related to a project such as a site description, hydrology analysis, pre and post construction stormwater practices, spill response plans, inspections, and supporting permitting documentation as required by the regulatory agency.
Engineering design plans including but not limited to grading, stormwater, and erosion and sediment control are included as supporting documentation to the SWPPP.
When Is A SWPPP Required?
A SWPPP requirement is based on the authority of the regulatory agency including state, local, and municipality that applies to your site and/or project. Depending on the coverage and permit you are attempting to obtain a SWPPP may be required for the following purposes:
- Land disturbance over over 1-acre
- Construction Activities
- Changes in Site conditions such as runoff discharge points, topography (grading), sediment control practices, and impervious areas
- Changes or upgrades to existing stormwater practices
