Stormwater Pollution Prevention

Storm water runoff and melted snow runoff can become polluted and contaminate clean water supplies impacting people, vegetation and wildlife.  Sources of contamination can be detergents, chemicals, paint, rock salt, pesticides and many other things.

The good news is storm water runoff is regulated by the Environment Protection Agency (EPA) for industries most likely to be offenders.  The National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) Stormwater Program is usually administered at the state level. The regulations are commonly referred to as Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plans (SWPPP or SW3P). Every business in an identified industry must have a SWPPP.

To learn more about SWPPP’s and their requirements try the Video on Demand training courses Stormwater Pollution Prevention: A Drop in the Bucket and Storm Warnings: Storm Water Pollution Prevention.
