Any project which disturbs 1 acre or more of land area is required by California law to prepare a Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP). The Clean Water Act and EPA regulations require this document as a mitigation guideline for stormwater runoff from construction sites which could have the potential for negatively impacting water bodies.
A SWPPP is a large document that shows the plans for erosion and sediment control, detailing all the project BMPs that must be employed, the Sediment Risk Factor for the project, Receiving Water Risk, and Erosivity Factor for the project. Ultimately, the SWPPP will be uploaded to the State’s website (called SMARTs) in order to obtain a Construction General Permit with the State, allowing the construction site activities to be monitored. The SWPPP must be kept on the construction site and is the “guide” for the contractor and QSP (see service section for QSPs) to use during construction.
