Stormwater Program Plan Development – Municipalities and other public entities with Separate Storm Sewer Systems (MS4’s) which service a population greater than 100,000 are required to obtain a permit to discharge stormwater throughout their jurisdiction. This permit requires the development of a “Stormwater Management Program Plan” (SWMP) based on six minimum management measures. These six measures include the development of a Public Education Program (PEP) designed to educate the public on hazards associated with illicit discharges, identification and reporting of illicit discharges, along with pollution prevention practices, waste disposal facilities, and recycling opportunities. The plan must also include provisions for Public Involvement & Participation (PIP), Illicit Discharge Elimination Programs (IDEP), Construction & Post-Construction stormwater management programs and Pollution Prevention & Good Housekeeping policies and procedures for employees.
Our cleanWATER professional staff have assisted a variety of public institutions with development and implementation of SWMPs and are actively involved with local watershed groups and organizations. This involvement benefits all cleanWATER clients through sharing of information, cooperation within the regulated community and interaction with the regulatory agencies.
