Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP)

State and Federal law requires a Storm Water Pollution Plan for all developments exceeding one acre. Developments of less than one acre will still be required to take appropriate measures to prevent sediment from entering the storm drain system and to prevent the tracking of mud and debris onto city streets.

The SWPPP should provide information regarding construction period Best Management Practices (BMPs), location of BMPs, details of specific BMPs and notes specific to the project. Avoid “boiler plate” notes that are not relevant to the project. A list of available Construction BMPs anPost-Construction BMPs can be found on the Environmental Protection Agency’s website.  All BMPs are subject to the approval of West Valley City.

A guideline for developing a SWPPP is available through the Utah Department of Environmental Quality, Division of Water Quality.

A notice of intent (NOI) must be filed through the Utah State Division of Water Quality and can be obtained online. Upon completion of the project a notice of termination (NOT) must be obtained.
