Water quality can be dramatically impacted by inadequate construction site erosion and sediment control measures. For these reasons, the Environmental Protection Agency regulates even relatively small construction sites under the Phase II National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) regulations. The most critical requirement of the NPDES construction site general permit is the preparation and implementation of a SWPPP.

This course explains how to develop and implement a SWPPP. The course is intended for practicing engineers, contractors, developers, regulators, and all other personnel involved with construction sites. Understanding the requirements for the creation and implementation of a SWPPP is essential to staying in compliance with the law. Moreover, an adequately designed SWPPP is the primary tool needed to reduce water quality impacts from construction activities.
