#MYS0016-06 Maintaining Your SWPPP/Erosion Control Plan

Throughout the lifetime of a construction project many things will change and move around the site. Therefore, the SWPPP (Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan) should be seen as a living document.

Updates to the SWPPP map must be made when things move, and corrections made when some BMPs may not be as effective as planned.

The SWPPP should be designed in phases to roughly correlate with different phases of construction. If any changes are required that are not on the SWPPP, the QSD (Qualified SWPPP Developer) must be consulted to approve the changes or design other options.

A SWPPP map/Erosion Control Plan and book shall be kept on site at all times. The SWPPP map should be updated with non-permanent markings to show where changes have been made to the original plan and any major changes should be approved of by the QSD.

A person with adequate training in SWPPP is responsible for visually inspecting the site each day and carrying out corrective measures in any observed deficiencies. If Scott Environmental is not providing your weekly inspections, then a trained person must perform written weekly inspections, which are to be kept in a binder with all previous reports.

The weather must be checked online through NOAA (www.noaa.gov) at least once a week in order to effectively take required action when rain events are predicted to occur. These weather forecasts must be printed out and kept onsite.
