What is an SWPPP?

A stormwater pollution prevention plan (SWPPP) is a fundamental requirement of stormwater permits. A SWPPP: identifies all potential sources of pollution which may reasonably be expected to affect the quality of storm water discharges from the construction site.

A SWPPP may also be called a “construction best practices plan,” “sediment and stormwater plan,” “erosion, sedimentation, and pollution prevention plan,” or similar term. The SWPPP (or similarly named plan) is generally required to comply with EPA’s or the state’s stormwater construction general permit.

Because every industrial site is unique, every SWPPP is unique. The SWPPP needs to be reviewed and updated by the operator on a regular basis. Larkin Environmental can help keep you in compliance. We aren’t like other organizations who operate with a “one size fits all” approach. We customize your plan to your needs and budget.
