Stormwater Compliance: How to Keep Effective Documentation

If your company wants to stay in compliance with the myriad of new and forthcoming stormwater runoff requirements, you need an effective document management system. All stormwater permitting authorities require a site-specific Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP) as well documentation of inspections, findings, and maintenance and repair of all BMPs. In the case of an audit or incident, government enforcers will want to see written proof of your compliance.

Associated General Contractors of America's Environmental Forum Steering Committee members have worked with agency staff to develop customizable “templates” to help contractors develop a SWPPP and document the site inspections and corrective actions required by EPA’s new 2012 Construction General Permit (CGP). EPA’s federal stormwater permit serves a model for permits issued in states authorized to implement the federal stormwater program.

AGC is offering a webinar to help contractors learn how to use these documents to keep projects in compliance.
