Presentation Title: Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plans
Presented By: by Michael D. Travis, P.E., Travis/Peterson Environmental Consulting, Inc.

Mike gave a brief history of SWPPP, a status on what’s going on today, and what to expect on July 1, 2011.  The Clean Water Act (aka “Water Quality Act”) was discussed where he touched on the 1987 National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPNES), the goals of this program, and the regulated “point source and non-point source” discharges.  Looking into the Jurisdictional wetlands, Mike touched on discharges and that they must be permitted.  He looked at Individual Permits versus Construction General Permits (CGP), and the requirements of each.  EPA instructions was talked about and the present day SWPPP.  He brought up local requirements that included Alaska SWPPP, MOA guidance manual, ADEC Storm Water Guide manual.  He finished with the new CGP coming out in July.  Touched on some highlights and discussed possible exemptions.  If you would like a copy of the presentation, please contact one of the ITE Alaska officers.
