What is a SWPPP?

A Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP) is a manual that outlines how a construction project will minimize storm water pollution. Construction sites are a well-known source of sediment and other pollutants which can cause significant harm to rivers, lakes, coastal waters, and flood control facilities. The SWPPP describes the permit holder's activity to prevent pollution for the specific project.  

When we create a SWPPP for you, our plans will:

  • identify all potential sources of pollution from your site
  • define best management practices (BMP) to reduce and mitigate those pollutants in storm water discharges, and
  • include a facility diagram, a potential pollutant diagram and a monitoring diagram 

You may need a more extensive plan depending on the risk level of your project, as defined by the criteria in California's National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) Permit 2009-0009 DWQ. But no matter your risk level, MVM can create the right plan for you, tailored to the specific characteristics of your site and property.
