Frequently Asked Questions About Stormwater Compliance
What Is a Stormwater Outfall?
In general, an outfall is the point where stormwater discharges to waters of the United States or a municipal separate storm sewer system (MS4). If the actual receiving water body is not adjacent to the site, the facility's outfall is considered to be the location where the discharges leave the industrial site
Why is Stormwater management important?
Stormwater management ensures streams, rivers, and lakes are cleaner, flooding reduced, costs due to flood damage decrease and com- surrounding areas quality of life increases.
How Can Software Help?
Stormwater Software simplifies the regulatory compliance requirements associated with developing and maintaining Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plans (SWPPP)and associated requirements such as completion of inspections and Discharge Monitoring Reports (DMR).
Do I Need a Stormwater Permit?
Under EPA regulations, you will typically need a stormwater permit if your facility:
My Site Rarely Discharges, Do I Still Need a Stormwater Permit?
Per EPA, even if a discharge to waters of the U.S. occurs only rarely, as with a 100-year storm event, permit coverage for that discharge is required.
When Do Construction Activities Require a Stormwater Permit?
Discharges from construction activities that disturb one or more acres and discharges from smaller sites that are part of a larger common plan of development or sale require a construction stormwater permit. Check out EPA's "Do I Need a Permit" flow chart.
Do Oil and Gas Activities Require Stormwater Permits?
Many states, such as Colorado, require oil and gas pads to obtain stormwater permit coverage during construction as well as perform certain post-construction activities until the site if fully reclaimed.
Under Federal/EPA regulations, permitting of certain oil and gas activites is not required unless the site has had a discharge of a "reportable quantity" or violated/exceeded a water quality standard. See EPA's website for further information.
Do Stormwater Discharges to Groundwater Require a Permit?
Not under EPA regulations, but some States (such as Washington) and Tribes do require permit coverage for stormwater discharges to groundwater (e.g. infiltration).
