STORM WATER POLLUTION PREVENTION for Construction Sites
Are you planning to complete any construction in the near future? If so, the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) Storm Water Program requires construction sites disturbing more than one acre of land to obtain an NPDES Permit and to develop a customized Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP) for your construction site.
An NPDES Permit sets limits on what can be discharged to a stream, river, or lake for a period of five years. The first step in obtaining an NPDES Permit is developing and submitting a SWPPP. The SWPPP is the most important requirement of the NPDES General Permit and is required for and must be tailored to each construction site. It must identify potential sources of pollution, as well as describe and ensure the implementation of Best Management Practices. A copy of the SWPPP must be retained at the construction site from the date of project initiation to the date of final stabilization.
The second step is submitting a Notice of Intent (NOI) for General Permit to Discharge Storm Water Associated with Construction 30 days prior to the start of construction. Filing fees vary depending on the size of the construction site. Sub-mission of the filing fee and an electronic submission of the SWPPP for Initial Permit must be made prior to the NOI being considered complete for coverage by the ILR10 General Permits.
Upon completion of the project, the permittee must submit a Notice of Termination (NOT) to the IEPA after the land disturbing activities are complete and the site has been stabilized. The United State EPA considers that a site has been stabilized when all land distrubing activities are complete and a uniform perennial vegatative cover with a density of 70% of the cover for unpaved areas and ares not covered by permanent structures has been established or equivalent permanent stabilization measures have been used.
