SWPPP stands for Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan.
Generally, the SWPPP is a site-specific written document that should identify industrial operations, and should identify practices that the site-specific industrial facility is implementing to prevent and minimize pollutants from reaching stormwater runoff.
Along with BMPs (Best Management Practices), the SWPPP (sometimes referred to as SWP3 or SWP2 or SWPP) is usually required by Stormwater Permits pursant to local authority's adopted NPDES program (authorized by Clean Water Act).
The SWPPP is considered a living document and should be updated as necessary to reflect any changes in industrial operations and its pollution prevention practices.
The SWPPP should usually be prepared by the discharger before submitting an NOI (Notice of Intent) or General Permit application.
Some jurisdictions may require the discharger(s) to file electronically. For example, in California, the SWPPP should be submitted electronically through SMARTS (Storm Water Multiple Application and Report Tracking System).
