The St. Cloud Technical and Commnity College (SCTCC) Storm Water Pollution Prevention Program (SWPPP) has been prepared in conformance with the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES), Phase II Rules.
The goal of the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System Permit is to restore and maintain the chemical, physical and biological integrity of waters of the state through management and treatment of urban storm water runoff. This program requires that this be accomplished through the management of Municipal Separate Storm Sewer Systems (MS4s) and through the preparation of a SCTCC Storm Water Pollution Prevention Program (SWPPP).
The SWPPP identifies the goals and the Best Management Practices (BMPs) that will be undertaken to meet the requirements of the NPDES Phase II rules. Measurable goals have been established for each of the BMPs included in the SWPPP along with an implementation plan and the persons responsible for implementing the BMPs.
This SWPPP has been prepared to manage and minimize the discharge of pollutants from ouR MS4 to the maximum extent practicable. This will be accomplished through the implementation of the BMPs outlined within the SWPPP. The BMPs are a combination of education, maintenance, control techniques, system design and engineering methods, and other such provisions that are appropriate to meet the requirements of the NPDES Phase II permit. BMPs have been prepared to address each of the six minimum control measures as outlined in the rules. These six minimum control measures are:
- Public education and outreach on storm water impacts
- Public participation and involvement
- llicit discharge detection and elimination
- Construction site runoff control
- Post-construction storm water management in new development and redevelopment
- Pollution prevention/good housekeeping for municipal operations
