Storm Water Challenges
Storm Water Pollution Prevention (SWPP) has become a challenge for development projects. Violations of existing laws can result in significant added project costs. Pollution discharges in runoff from project sites, even if accidental, may result in fines due to non-compliance with regulatory requirements, and potential lawsuits by third parties or environmental groups.
Projects are required to use Best Management Practices (BMP’s) to prevent construction related pollution from impacting downstream properties. The preparation of a Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP) is a generally required document that identifies potential sources of pollution, describes how to reduce pollutants from a construction site and helps ensure that a site is compliant with the State’s Construction General Permit. The SWPPP must be prepared by a Qualified SWPPP Developer (QSD) and the BMP’s outlined in the SWPPP must be monitored by a Qualified SWPPP Practitioner (QSP).
