The National Pollution Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit program reduces water pollution by regulating point sources that discharge to Waters of the United States.  NPDES was created in 1972 by the Clean Water Act and is administered by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA).  The USEPA, in turn, authorizes state governments to fulfill the permitting, administrative and enforcement aspects of the NPDES program.  Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plans (SWPPPs, discussed below) are part of the storm water permits administered under NPDES.  Some states refer to these plans by different names.

Read more below about some of the specific permits the VET team has helped acquire and SWPPPs we have prepared.  

Indiana Construction Storm Water (Rule 5)

An Indiana Rule 5 Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plan (Rule 5 SWPPP) is a site-specific plan that helps protect waters of the state from pollutants in storm water runoff associated with construction activities and/or land disturbance. Rule 5 SWPPPs contain information about project site hydrology, planned construction activities, potential sources and measures that will be taken to control erosion, pollution, and runoff. Having a Rule 5 SWPPP in place is a requirement of the NPDES general permit as administered by Indiana. Most construction activities that disturb more than 1 acre of land (and some that disturb less than 1 acre) are required by the Indiana Department of Environmental Management (IDEM) to have a Rule 5 general permit, which necessitates a Rule 5 SWPPP.

Indiana Industrial Storm Water (Rule 6)

An Indiana Rule 6 Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plan (Rule 6 SWPPP) is a site-specific plan that shows where runoff is discharged from an industrial property and identifies possible pollutants it could be carrying. Rule 6 SWPPPs contain information about property hydrology and land use, current or planned industrial activities, potential pollutant sources and measures taken to monitor and control pollution in property runoff.
Rule 6 SWPPPs are part of the NPDES general permit as administered by Indiana. A facility's applicability to Rule 6 is determined by the facility's Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) codes, the presence of industrial activities exposed to storm water, and the existence of one or more outfalls on the facility's property. Facility operators (not property owners) are responsible for determining applicability and complying with Rule 6 requirements.

Illinois Construction Storm Water

A Construction Site Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP) is a site-specific plan that helps protect waters of the state from pollutants in storm water runoff associated with construction activities and/or land disturbance. Construction Site SWPPPs contain information about project site hydrology, planned construction activities, potential sources and measures that will be taken to control erosion, pollution, and runoff. Having a Construction Site SWPPP in place is a requirement of the NPDES general permit as administered by Illinois. Most construction activities that disturb more than 1 acre of land (and some that disturb less than 1 acre) are required by the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency (IEPA) to have a NPDES general permit, which necessitates a Construction Site SWPPP.

Kentucky Construction Storm Water

The Kentucky Pollution Discharge Elimination System (KPDES) permit program was developed to reduce water pollution by regulating point sources that discharge to regulated waters of the Commonwealth of Kentucky. A Construction Site Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP) is a site-specific plan that helps protect waters of the state from pollutants in storm water runoff associated with construction activities and/or land disturbance. Construction Site SWPPPs contain information about project site hydrology, planned construction activities, potential sources and measures that will be taken to control erosion, pollution, and runoff. Having a Construction Site SWPPP in place is a requirement of the KPDES general permit. Most construction activities that disturb more than 1 acre of land (and some that disturb less than 1 acre) are required by the Kentucky Department of Water (KDOW) to have a KPDES general permit, which necessitates a Construction Site SWPPP.

Missouri Construction Storm Water

A Construction Site Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP) is a site-specific plan that helps protect regulated waters from pollutants in storm water runoff associated with construction activities and/or land disturbance. Construction Site SWPPPs contain information about project site hydrology, planned construction activities, potential sources and measures that will be taken to control erosion, pollution, and runoff. Having a Construction Site SWPPP in place is a requirement of the NPDES general permit as administered by Missouri. Most construction activities that disturb more than 1 acre of land (and some that disturb less than 1 acre) are required by the Missouri Division of Environmental Quality and the Water Protection Program to have a NPDES general permit, which necessitates a Construction Site SWPPP.
