The Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management Posts new Construction Site Stormwater Compliance Assistance Tools on the DEM WEBSITE!
The DEM has recently developed two compliance assistance tools for construction site owners and operators that disturb ≥ 1 acre of land. The first compliance assistance tool is the RI Model Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan (RI Model SWPPP). This tool will be useful to construction site owners who are applying for permit coverage or who have not yet developed a site specific SWPPP for their construction project as required by the RIPDES Construction General Permit. The following link will take you to the RI Model SWPPP Fact Sheet which explains the many benefits of the RI Model SWPPP and where additional information can be found if you choose to take advantage of this valuable resource: http://www.dem.ri.gov/programs/benviron/water/permits/swcoord/pdf/swpppfs.pdf
The second compliance assistance tool that is now available for construction site owners and operators is the Construction Site Stormwater Compliance Program. Participation in this program will better prepare construction site owners and operators to readily determine when compliance issues exist at their construction site, and will give owners the opportunity to take corrective action before environmental impacts and/or violations occur. More information on this program can be found by going to the following webpage: http://www.dem.ri.gov/programs/benviron/assist/ms4/index.htm
The Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management in cooperation with the Northeast Chapter of the International Erosion Control Association invite you to attend the following training event: Construction Site Stormwater Compliance Workshop on Tuesday November 15, 2011!
This workshop will focus on three key areas: the RI Model SWPPP, the Construction Site Stormwater Compliance Program, and the Evolution of Jobsite Erosion Control Technology. For a preview of the agenda and registration information please go to the following website:
