What Types of Controls are Projects that need to Comply with the SWQCCP Subject To?
Projects need to determine which types of controls need to be implemented. This may include the following, additional information is provided within the section of the SWQCCP referenced.
- Site Design Controls to reduce stormwater runoff peak flows and volumes through appropriate site design. (SWQCCP Section 3)
- Source Controls are practices to prevent pollutants from contacting stormwater runoff or to prevent the discharge of contaminated runoff to the storm drainage system. (SWQCCP Section 4)
- Volume Reduction Measures (VRMs) are controls that can be used to direct, retain, reuse and/or infiltrate stormwater runoff (e.g., rain gardens and rain barrels). (SWQCCP Section 5)
- Treatment Controls are engineered systems designed to remove pollutants from stormwater runoff. (SWQCCP Section 6)
What must be submitted to the City and County for Priority Projects subject to the SWQCCP?
Once it is determined that a project is subject to the SWQCCP and must incorporate post-construction stormwater controls, a Project Stormwater Quality Plan (SWQP) and Maintenance Plan must be submitted.
- Project Stormwater Quality Control Plan (SWQCP) must adequately demonstrate that the proposed project will conform to all requirements; (SWQCCP Appendix E) and
- Maintenance Plan must include guidelines for how and when inspection and maintenance should occur for each. (SWQCCP Section 7, Appendix D)
