Program For Construction Activity
Stormwater runoff from construction activities can have a significant impact on water quality by contributing sediment and other pollutants to waterbodies.
The operator of a regulated construction site must obtain an NPDES stormwater permit and implement appropriate pollution prevention techniques to minimize erosion and sedimentation and properly manage stormwater. It is important to keep in mind that the permit required under DEP's NPDES stormwater program is separate from the Environmental Resource Permit (ERP) required under Part IV, Chapter 373, F.S., (593KB), a stormwater discharge permit required under Chapter 62-25, F.A.C., or any local government's stormwater discharge permit for construction activity.
