Storm Water Pollution Prevention Practices
Best Management Practice – Some use the term storm water pollution prevention (SWPP) and some refer to it as storm water pollution prevention plans (SWPPP’s) either way, the contractor will implement a best management practice (BMP) to keep to the plan. Examples of common BMP’s are water truck for controlling fugitive dust, a power sweeper for cleaning streets, curbs and gutters, silt fencing for erosion control, concrete washout stations and inlet protectors.
Using BMP’s as Systems to Prevent Water Pollution:
Uncontrolled storm water runoff from construction sites can significantly impact rivers, lakes and estuaries. Sediment in water bodies from construction sites can reduce the amount of sunlight reaching aquatic plants, clog fish gills, smother aquatic habitat and spawning areas, and impede navigation.
BMP inspection and maintenance requires dedicating both management and staff time to inspect, clean, and repair or replace BMPs. Also, additional BMP materials may need to be purchased. For example, a silt fence that has been ripped will require replacement.
