Construction SWPPPs from A to Z: Everything You Ever Wanted to Know and More!


Construction sites disturbing one acre or more of land are required to obtain NPDES permit coverage for their stormwater discharges. These sites must develop stormwater pollution prevention plans (SWPPPs) to ensure that they don't adversely impact water quality. Building on EPA's popular webcast on construction held on March 10, 2006, this webcast will focus on the key elements to developing an effective SWPPP. The webcast will summarize EPA's new guidance Developing Your Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan: A Guide for Construction Site Operators which covers assessing the construction site, selecting appropriate erosion and sediment controls, selecting appropriate good housekeeping BMPs, and inspections, maintenance and recordkeeping issues. The webcast will also discuss common problems found on construction sites from the perspective of an EPA inspector.
