What is a SWPPP?
A Utah Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP) is a document that outlines the best management practices (BMPs) for controlling and preventing pollutants from entering our waterways. It is an important tool for controlling stormwater runoff from construction and industrial sites.
The SWPPP is designed to ensure that the stormwater from the site is managed in a way that protects the environment and public health.
If you are an owner or Utah contractor, you are likely required by law to have a SWPPP in place before beginning any construction project. If you aren't sure if your project needs a SWPPP - give us a call! We'll help you determine for certain if your project needs one or not.
In Utah, any construction project that involves land disturbance of more than one acre or less than one acre that is part of a Common Plan Development or will require a SWPPP.
You need to be certified in order to perform Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP) inspections on most construction projects.
Certification is provided by the Environmental Protection Agency or the State of Utah and is a requirement for anyone who is responsible for conducting SWPPP inspections.
Certification ensures that inspections are performed correctly and according to the standards set forth by the EPA.
