What is SWPPP?

A SWPPP, or Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plan, is a crucial document mandated by the TCEQ and EPA. It outlines measures to prevent stormwater pollution and control sedimentation and erosion on industrial and construction sites. By implementing a SWPPP, businesses can comply with the Clean Water Act and avoid potential fines and penalties.

Who Needs SWPPP?

Industrial and manufacturing facilities, as well as construction site operators, are required to have a SWPPP in place if their activities involve the potential discharge of pollutants into stormwater runoff. Our expert team at CRG Texas Environmental Services assists clients in understanding their obligations under SWPPP regulations and provides tailored solutions to ensure compliance.

Permits:

SWPPP Multi Sector General Permit (TXR050000)

Discharges of stormwater are regulated if associated with an industrial, manufacturing, or other regulated activity into one of the following:

  • Gutters, streets, channels, ditches, or other stormwater conveyances that are part of a municipal separate stormwater sewer system (MS4), or surface water in the State, and your business activity fits into one of the regulated industrial sectors, meaning that your industrial activity fits under one or more of the Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) codes.

Suppose your facility SIC code is subject to TPDES Multi-Sector General Permit. In that case, you will need to obtain coverage under General Permit TXR050000.

CSWPPP (Construction General Permit TXR150000):

Large construction activities disturbing 5 or more acres, or part of a larger common plan of development, are regulated under Construction General Permit TXR150000. Depending on the size of the construction site:

  • Less than 1 acre: No SWPPP coverage required.
  • Between 1 and 5 acres: SWPPP and Construction Notice must be posted at the site, and a notice to the local municipal stormwater permitting department (MS4) is necessary.
  • More than 5 acres: SWPPP, Notice of Intent, Notice of Termination, and Construction Notice must be posted at the site.

SWPPP Tip

Seek help from the TCEQ Small Business and Local Government Assistance (SBLGA) to determine if your business is regulated under the Storm Water Pollution Prevention regulations (provide a link to SBLGA). If your business is regulated, seek help from an environmental consultant before possible stormwater regulatory agency audits or violations get reported.
