MSGP SWPPP Template and Additional Documentation Template now available

January 28, 2009

MSGP SWPPP Template and Additional Documentation Template now available

To assist industrial permit holders subject to the 2008 MSGP, EPA has recently posted a sample MSGP SWPPP Template and a sample Recordkeeping Template on the MSGP website. Industrial facilities can use EPA’s "MSGP SWPPP Template" to create their own SWPPPs. The Template provides step-by-step instructions for developing a SWPPP for your site, based on the requirements in the 2008 MSGP. All facilities must have a SWPPP completed prior to submitting their NOIs for coverage under the 2008 MSGP.

The sample recordkeeping template includes tables and forms to assist industrial stormwater permit holders in keeping records of monitoring, inspection, maintenance, visual evaluation, and corrective action activities. The template includes example routine facility inspection and visual evaluation forms, along with examples of how to track other information required in the 2008 MSGP.

Both templates can be downloaded in Microsoft Word format from
