Depending on what industry you operate within, you may need a stormwater pollution prevention plan (SWPPP). However, creating your own SWPPP can be quite tedious. The good news is that you don’t have to go at it alone. Our SWPPP compliance solutions make it easy to achieve compliance – and remain in compliance.
At RSB Environmental, we can help with all of your SWPPP needs. Applying for your permit? We’ve got you covered. Need assistance with training? No problem. Let’s dive into how we can help your company.
The Importance of SWPPP
First, it’s important to understand the key functions of SWPPP. Most importantly, they outline how you will reduce stormwater pollution. This is important for two reasons.
- SWPPPs are mandated for certain industries. You won’t get a construction permit if you don’t have one. Or, if you obtain a permit and fall out of compliance, you could face fines/violations.
- SWPPPs help you protect the environment. Protecting the environment is everyone’s responsibility, including your company’s. The way you protect natural resources will impact future generations. It will shape your brand image, too.
Before you start making an SWPPP, ensure that your industry is required to do so. Consider some of the types of companies that we support:
- Ready-mix concrete plants
- Light industrial companies
- Oil and gas companies
- Salvage Yards/Automobile Industry
- Energy companies
- Machine (various operations) shop
- Lumber companies
There are many other types of companies that need an SWPPP. Check your Standard Industrial Classification (or SIC code) to find out whether your sector is included. These codes are part of the North American Industry Classification System (NAICS).
Make sure to review local and state laws, too. Each state has its own set of environmental laws. SIC may not require you to have an SWPPP. However, your state might.
Not sure where to begin researching this information? RSB Environmental can help. We have a team of experts that understand the federal, state, and local regulations. We can determine what you need to do to obtain permits. We can even help you with the application process.
