The Storm Water Pollution Prevention (SWPP) Plan: Preparing for a really, really rainy day.

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) require certain industrial facilities to obtain National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit coverage for storm water discharges. These facilities must develop and implement a Stormwater Pollution Prevention (SWPP) plan to satisfy the requirements of the NPDES Permit. The SWPP plan evaluates potential pollutants which could be mobilized by stormwater and subsequent discharges, establishes Best Management Practices (BMPs), and provides a monitoring and inspection schedule, which includes the recommended quarterly monitoring requirements.
