Regulations About Stormwater Management

Overview of EPA's NPDES Construction

The National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit program regulates the discharge of pollutants to waters of the United States. NPDES permits have traditionally been issued to industrial and publicly owned wastewater treatment plants; however, 1987 amendments to the federal Clean Water Act added stormwater to the NPDES permitting universe.

Environmental Impact

In open fields, forests, and wetlands, most rain is absorbed by the soil or is taken up by plants and trees. In developed areas, rain that falls on impermeable roofs, parking lots, streets, and lawns is not absorbed. Instead, it travels down roadways, settles in gutters and ditches, and flows through storm drains to finally end up in rivers, lakes, and wetlands.

Basic Requirements Of SWPPP

A Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP) is basically an erosion, sediment and waste chemical control plan. It is up to the permit holder to decide what types of Best Management Practices (BMPs) to use at a given site, but the company/municipality/contractor must comply with the permit requirement.
