What is a Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP)? 

There are two parts, a SWPPP and a State General Construction Stormwater Permit Coverage (State Permit).

  • A State permit requires you to control and eliminate stormwater pollution sources through the development and implementation of a SWPPP.
  • A SWPPP is a plan required by the State permit.  It generally shows possible sources of stormwater pollutants identified and the Best Management Practices (BMPs) that are selected to reduce or eliminate their impacts.  BMP's are the most important element of this plan.  The aim is to control stormwater sediment and erosion to the maximum extent practicable.

When is a SWPPP and a State permit required?

When the proposed land disturbance falls under one of the following permit type descriptions:

  • Common Plan Permit (CPP)- applies to single residential lots disturbing less than an acre and located in subdivisions that are an acre or greater.
  • Construction General Permit (CGP)- applies to all other lots disturbing an acre or more (or lots that are part of a common plan of development, subdivision, or phased project that disturb an acre or more).
  • For more information, see the SWPPP compliance process below.
  • If you need further assistance, contact the Public Improvements Engineer at 435-615-5057 or nestor.gallo@parkcity.org

 

Where do I get a State permit?  Also known as filing a Notice of Intent (NOI).

  • State permits are filed through the State of Utah.  See the SWPPP compliance process below.
  • If you need further assistance, contact the SWPPP Coordinator, Liz Lagoy at 435-615-5364 or elizabeth.lagoy@parkcity.org

SWPPP Compliance Process:

1. SWPPP determination and plan review.  Under building permit applications that include land disturbance, the Engineering Department will determine if your project requires a State General Construction Stormwater permit coverage (State permit) and which type.  You will be notified if your project requires a State permit or not.

  • If a State permit is required-  Engineering will review the SWPPP plan for SWPPP requirements, and the SWPPP compliance process will begin as described below.
  • If a State permit is not required- no further SWPPP action is needed.  NOTE:  Stormwater BMP's may still be required by Park City.

2. Apply for a State permit. Also known as filing a Notice of Intent (NOI).  State permits are filed through the State of Utah.

  • If you have not applied for a State permit before, create an account with the State of Utah.  Create an account early because it can take a while to receive login credentials.  
  • Once the building permit is issued and the SWPPP plan is approved, file an NOI with the State of Utah.

**To avoid delays, note the following**

  • Choose the NOI for the type of State permit that applies to your project.
  • Ensure the person who will be signing and submitting forms applies as a Signatory (not Preparer).
  • Use full legal names and home addresses.
  • Read and understand all requirements of the State permit that covers your project.  The State of Utah Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) or EPA may inspect your project at any time without notice.
  • REMINDER: State permits are active for one year from the date you apply.  Renew as needed, until Notice of Termination (NOT) is requested.

3. SWPPP inspections.  SWPPP inspections are documented through UtiliSync.  NOTE: To use an alternate SWPPP inspection system, see UtiliSync Guide.

  • If you have not used UtiliSync before, click HERE to create an account and see the UtiliSync Guide
  • For your project, create and configure a site and include the following:

a. Upload a SWPPP and Site plan.

b. Create a "Public Link" for City SWPPP inspectors to view Contractor SWPPP inspections.

For Contractor SWPPP Inspections:

  • Generally, inspections are required weekly (every 7 days).  Contractor SWPPP inspection requirements are provided with the State permit that covers your project.  Read and understand all requirements.
  • Contractor to document their inspections through UtiliSync.
  • REMINDER: State permits are active for one year from the date you applied.  Renew as needed, until Notice of termination (NOT) is requested.

For City SWPPP inspections:

  • City SWPPP inspections are documented through UtiliSync.  Any action items must be repaired/replaced and closed out by the Contractor as required by the State permit.
  • Contractor to provide SWPPP and Site plans onsite for all scheduled inspections.  Note: These plans are "working documents" where they are kept up to date, as the project changes, as required by the State permit.

4. Request termination of the State permit.  Also known as filing a Notice of Termination (NOT).  Once all work is complete and vegetation is stabilized, contact SWPPP Coordinator, Liz Lagoy at 435-615-5364 or elizabeth.lagoy@parkcity.org for the following:

  • Verify the State permit termination process can begin.
  • Determine when to request an NOT with the State of Utah.
  • Schedule the SWPPP Final Inspection.  NOTE: SWPPP Final inspection requirements are provided with the State permit that covers your project.  Read and understand all requirements.
  • Receive long term inspection requirement instructions, if applicable.
  • REMINDER: State permits are active for one year from the date you applied.  Renew as needed, until NOT is requested.
