STORM WATER POLLUTION PREVENTION PROGRAM

To reduce the quantity and improve the quality of storm water runoff, UMD has developed a Storm Water Pollution Prevention Program (SWPPP). The SWPPP is legally approved by the Minnesota pollution Control Agency, acting on behalf of the U.S. Environmental Protection agency to enforce the federal Clean Water Act. 

There are six minimum control measures required in the SWPPP, including:

  1. Public Education and Outreach
  2. Public Involvement and Participation
  3. Illicit Discharge Detection and Elimination
  4. Construction Storm Water Runoff Control
  5. Post Construction Storm Water
  6. Pollution Prevention and Good Housekeeping

The University of Minnesota has established a set of best management practices (BMPs) to reduce impacts on its receiving waters to the maximum extent practicable (MEP) for each of the six minimum control measures. These BMPs form the framework for the SWPPP.
