About SWPPP Guide



The purpose of this website is to help guide and inform the public regarding SWPPPs and stormwater regulations for stormwater permitting. Note that SWPPPs are considered "living" site-specific written documents that should be kept up-to-date to reflect any changes related to stormwater discharges and control practices. Failure to submit properly prepared SWPPPs may result in penalties or fines depending on the jurisdiction. Businesses may be incentivized to comply with local and federal stormwater regulations to avoid hefty fines. By keeping industrial businesses informed about the possible dangers of stormwater runoff and penalities, compliance is more likely. Industrial businesses benefit. The environment benefits.
