Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan

Pollution Prevention Plans

As part of the stormwater permit, you must develop a pollution prevention plan. You must have your plan in place before construction begins.

The pollution prevention plan must include:

  • Drainage patterns and flow directions;
  • Areas of exposed materials and/or soil disturbances;
  • Location of major structural and nonstructural controls identified in the plan;
  • Surface water;
  • Location(s) where spills or leaks have occur;
  • Other areas of concern, such as fuel tank storage;
  • Discharge outfalls or locations where stormwater is discharged.

Signed certification statement (found in section 6.9 of the General Construction Permit)

You are responsible for implementing the pollution prevention plan. You must update the plan as site conditions change. You must keep a copy of your plan on-site. You are not required to send a copy of the plan to DENR, unless DENR specifically requests it.

A template for developing a stormwater pollution prevention plan is available at this link:  SWPPP
