Our Official Stormwater Management Training Course

In California, the EPA delegated authority over the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) Permitting Program to the California State Water Resources Control Board (SWRCB). This program manages wastewater and stormwater discharges from various activities, including construction, industrial operations, and Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4) activities. To adhere to the EPA and The Clean Water Act’s stipulations for mitigating stormwater pollution, SWRCB oversees the California Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (CPDES) Permitting Program. CPDES ensures compliance with the Clean Water Act and federal directives, offering a framework for project owners and operators to secure permit coverage for discharging stormwater and wastewater into California’s surface waters.

Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ)
TPDES Construction General Permit (CGP)

Under the CPDES Construction General Permit (CGP), point source stormwater discharges originating from construction activities receive authorization. This encompasses small and large construction projects and auxiliary support activities like concrete batch plants and material storage yards. Before commencing any construction or land-disturbing activity, project site owners or operators involved in covered construction activities must apply for CPDES Construction General Permit coverage. This entails electronically submitting a complete Notice of Intent (NOI) to the SWRCB website and developing a Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plan (SWP3). As the general permit outlines, the SWP3 must delineate strategies to minimize pollutants in stormwater discharges associated with construction activity and non-stormwater discharges.
