What Is A Construction Stormwater General Permit
A regulatory permit established to control the discharge of stormwater pollutants during the construction process. This permit lays out a set of guidelines to help mitigate the adverse effects of stormwater runoff on the environment.
Who Needs It?
If you’re involved in construction projects that disturb one or more acres of land, or if your project is part of a larger common plan of development, obtaining a CGP is not just beneficial but legally necessary.
Site Evaluation and Planning:
- Site Assessment: Perform a thorough site assessment to understand the potential sources of pollution.
- Erosion and Sediment Control Plan: Develop a control plan that outlines prevention of erosion and manages sedimentation.
- NPDES Permit: Apply for the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit.
- Documentation: Maintain a comprehensive set of documents, including site plans and stormwater pollution prevention plans.
