Abstract:

This report fulfills the requirements of the EPA General Permit for storm water discharge that facilities requiring NPDES storm water permits prepare a Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plan SWPPP. Facilities requiring permits are those classified as industrial under one of eleven categories as defined in 40 CFR I 22.26b14O-xi. EPA has ruled that military bases are subject to storm water regulations based on secondary activities such as hazardous waste storage category iv, installation Restoration Program IRP sites category v, aircraft maintenancerefueling category viii, and waste water treatment category ix. The relevant activity at Peterson AFB that makes the base industrial under the NPDES program is the aircraft maintenancerefueling that takes place there. The purpose of the SWPPP is to 1 identify potential sources of pollution which may reasonably be expected to affect the quality of storm water discharge associated with industrial activity from the facility 2 implement best management practices BMPs to minimize storm water pollution and 3 assure compliance with all terms and conditions of the Permit. -BKA
