06 Aug 2018 9:41 AM | Miller (Administrator)

On August 1, 2018, the MN Pollution Control Agency's (PCA) New Construction Stormwater Permit Regulations went into effect. 

 The MPCA has stated the permit was completely reconfiqured into a new format in order to be more linear and easier to follow.   Also according to the MPCA, the five most common construction storm water violations are:

1. Missing or inadequate soil stabilization.

2. Missing perimeter controls.

3. Missing or inadequate inlet protection.

4. Vehicle tracking

5.  BMPs not contained.

The MPCA also shares the following reminders:

1. Ensure that you have a Construction Stormwater Permit and Plan if one is needed.

2. Remember to inspect your site within 24 hours of a rainfall greater than 1/2 inch.

3. Repair, replace or supplement all nonfunctional BMPs by the end of the next business day after discovery, or as soon as field conditions allow access.
