On July 1st, 2003 EPA reissued the Construction General Permit (CGP) to extend coverage to construction sites that disturb one or more acres, including smaller sites that are a part of a larger development. These sites are required to have a Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP). A SWPPP is a written document, which is broader and more complicated than a typical erosion and sediment control plan that describes the construction operator’s activities to comply with the requirements in the CGP. soil-tek of Mid America keeps development sites in compliance with not only the EPA’s regulations but local regulations as well by using a project management plan that includes:
- SWPPP Creation
- Secure on-site storage of SWPPP and other necessary documents that can be monitored by soil-tek inspectors 24 hours a day.
- Initial SWPPP updating and continued updating throughout the life of the project
- EPA required on-site inspections every 7 days and 24 hours after any rainfall greater than a 1/2 inch
- Maintenance and installation when needed
