U.S. EPA Releases New Resources for 2012 Construction General Permit

During March, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) hosted two webcasts on the recently released 2012 Construction General Permit (CGP). Notes from the webcast are available, and a copy of the presentation will soon be archived on EPA’s National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System training and workshop site. EPA has also developed a template to help construction operators develop custom stormwater pollution prevention plans (SWPPPs) to meet the 2012 CGP requirements. The SWPPP is a necessary prerequisite to filing for a CGP in which operators must describe plans to control stormwater runoff, erosion, and sediment from construction sites. Find the template and other SWPPP resources here. EPA also plans to update its guidance document and SWPPP examples, and will create a new template for submitting corrective action plans.
