The National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) General Permit for Storm Water Discharges Associated with Construction and Land Disturbance Activities (Order No. 2022-0057-DWQ effective 09/01/2023) requires that a SWPPP be prepared for any construction or demolition activity that results in a land disturbance of equal to or greater than one (1) acre. To obtain coverage under the Construction General Permit, Permit Registration Documents (PRDs), which include a Notice of Intent (NOI), SWPPP, and other documents, must be submitted to the State Water Resources Control Board.
Condor’s qualified QSDs are available to assist with any construction project in the preparation and submittal of the PRDs and in the development of project-specific, cost-effective Best Management Practices (BMPs). Condor has provided construction SWPPP services since 1999 for major agricultural and grading projects throughout California. Condor’s Construction Storm Water Compliance Services include:
The NPDES General Permit for Storm Water Discharges Associated with Industrial Activities (Order No. 2014-0057-DWQ as amended in 2015 and 2018) regulates storm water discharges and authorized non-storm water discharges (NSWDs) from regulated industrial facilities. To obtain coverage under the Industrial General Permit, PRDs, which includes appropriate coverages application, SWPPP, and site specific maps, must be submitted to the State Water Resources Control Board. In addition, in 2019, Senate Bill 205 requires a person applying to a city or county for a new or renewed business license to demonstrate enrollment in a NPDES storm water permit, if such a permit is required.
