Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plans
What is a Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP)?
When stormwater runoff drains away from a surface, it can take debris, sediments and chemicals with it that could pollute surrounding bodies of water. To help prevent harm to the water supply as a result of stormwater runoff, in 1972, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) amended the Clean Water Act, requiring facilities that discharge water with even small amounts of pollutants to have a Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan in place. These plans identify things at each specific site that could be potential pollutant sources and detail the proactive measures taken to prevent pollution.
