Why are Storm Water Pollution
water runoff is rainwater or industrial generated water
that runs off the land and eventually reaches our
streams, rivers, lakes and oceans.
When storm water runs through sites of industrial
activity it may pick up pollutants and transport them
into national waterways and effect commercial fisheries,
restrict swimming areas and negatively affect the
navigability of the nation’s waters.
To help curb the problem of storm
water, the Environmental Protection Agency has developed
a program under the Clean Water Act.
A major part of this program is the National
Pollution discharge Elimination System (NPDES), which
requires permitting for industrial activities.
The Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP)
is a major component of this program.
clients meet these requirements with the following
Planning and Organization
Best Management Practices
Evaluation and Monitoring
by Step Approach to Completing a SWPPP
can assist you by completing any of the steps needed to
meet the requirements of your SWPPP program.
ADvTECH has the flexibility to meet
the particular needs of your organization.
To help you understand what is required the
following are key components of a comprehensive SWPPP
Pollution Prevention Team –ADvTECH can help you select
critical players who are most familiar with the
facilities and operations.
One individual or a smaller team will then be
intimately involved in helping to develop, implement,
maintain and revise the SWPPP.
Pre-Existing Plans – ADvTECH can help you identify and
use existing state or federal requirements that may
already be in existence at your facility and that can be
incorporated into the SWPPP.
Storm Water Pollution Plans help
substances out of our storm drains which help keep our
national waterways clean and safe.
Site Map – A site map will identify points of
discharge, runoff patterns, direction of runoff flow,
surface water bodies, structural control measures, and
locations of industrial activities and materials that
may enter runoff.
Inventory – An inventory will be made of hazardous
materials that are stored, handled, or processed at the
past Spills and Leaks – A record of past spills or
leaks of reportable quantities will be made under CERCLA
and the Clean Water Act limits.
Water Discharges – An evaluation of these discharges
will be made. Examples
include water used directly in the manufacturing
process, vehicle wash water, or non-contact cooling
Evaluation Summary – A narrative will be completed
that describes any activities and locations that may
contribute to storm water pollution and identify
pollutants that are present in these areas.
IDENTIFICATION AND SELECTION Selected Best Management
Housekeeping – A safe, orderly and clean work
environment that includes proper maintenance of
machinery and processes, careful storage practices,
routine cleanup operations and proper training of
employees will be identified and described.
Prevention and Response – Employees will be kept aware
of correct response procedures including material
handling and storage.
Cleanup equipment will be readily available and a
spill plan will be kept updated and accessible.
and Erosion Control – Measures to control sediment and
reduce erosion will be identified and utilized.
Water Control – Measures to control vehicle cleaning
and fueling areas and spot illicit connections/illicit
discharges and will be identified and utilized.
Appropriate Controls –Scheduling, delegating
responsibilities to specific individuals, obtaining
management input and oversight will all be part of the
Training – A training program that creates an overall
awareness of the SWPPP objectives and focuses on topics
such as spill prevention and response, good housekeeping
and material management practices will be implemented.
Compliance Evaluation – An annual report that
documents inspection of all drainage areas, evaluates
good housekeeping measures, observes structural measures
and inspects entire site for problems will be conducted.
keeping and Internal Reporting – Quarterly and monthly
records of all inspections, spills, leaks, water
sampling activities and maintenance activities will be
records will be kept on-site and for a specified time
Revisions – Any changes in the facilities design,
construction, or maintenance program that will affect
the SWPPP will be noted and the SWPPP will be changed
