AGC of America recently alerted local chapters that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has released a new template for stormwater pollution prevention plans (SWPPPs). The SWPPPs are site-specific documents required by EPA to control construction stormwater runoff to waters of the United States from active sites with disturbance of one or more acres of land.
The template is designed to help construction operators develop a SWPPP that meets the minimum requirements of the new 2012 EPA Construction General Permit.
To find out more about SWPPPs you can read this article by AGCA. To access the SWPPP template and additional resources click here. If you have questions about the template, please email CGP@epa.gov.
