A construction site stormwater pollution prevention inspection checklist is a document that contains items related to the measures the construction project is taking to minimize the pollution resulting from stormwater.
This page will discuss:
A stormwater pollution plan (SWPPP) is a document that identifies all the conditions and activities at a given site that could cause water pollution and details the steps the contractor or organization plans to take to prevent pollution discharge. It not only helps the EPA preserve water quality, it is a required step for facilities in order to obtain a National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit.
A construction site stormwater pollution prevention inspection checklist should have the items related to the construction site stormwater management requirements, including demolition, waste clearing, grading, excavation, and others on small lands (one acre or more). The Environmental Health and Safety (OEHS) provide the checklist requirements in compliance with the State Resources Control Board (SWRCB), which include the direction stormwater flows from the facility, as well as the locations of all receiving waters, ditches, pipes, swales, drains, inlets, fueling stations, offloading areas, outdoor maintenance and equipment storage, and sources of runoff.
Construction site managers and contractors use this checklist to ensure their construction projects comply with OEHS and SWRCB regulations. The stormwater runoff from various construction sites can significantly harm lakes, rivers, coastal water and other resources of water. The purpose of this checklist is to reduce the environmental damage risks that may result from the collection of stormwater at the construction site.
A construction site stormwater pollution prevention inspection app helps operators of construction sites to prepare for SWPPP. This helps in obtaining stormwater discharge NPDES permit coverage and provides documentation of compliance with the Clean Water Act. It gives comprehensive details of construction site operator activities undertaken to control and prevent contamination, erosion, and sedimentation due to stormwater, including geotagged photos and videos. And you can adjust your mobile app according to your documentation requirements and workflow needs.
