EPA Publishes Template for Construction Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plans
On March 14, EPA posted to its website a new "template" for construction operators to use in developing stormwater pollution prevention plans (SWPPPs). SWPPPs are site-specific documents that are required as part of EPA's new 2012 Construction General Permit (CGP). The SWPPP template is designed to help construction operators develop a SWPPP that is compliant with the minimum requirements the new CGP. The SWPPP template allows operators to customize the document to the needs of the site, and includes tables and other fields that are easy to fill out. If there are any questions about the SWPPP template, or the CGP in general, send inquiries to CGP@epa.gov.
