Learn about the Florida CGP & SWPPP Requirements
You are required to prepare and implement a Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plan (or SWPPP). for any project that is larger than 1 acre or if less than 1 acre but part of a Larger Common Plan of Development.
What is a SWPPP?
Here in Florida, the Construction Generic Permit (CGP) also requires the permittee to prepare and implement a SWPPP. But given the fact that SWPPPs come in all shapes and sizes, we constantly get asked “what are the SWPPP requirements for the FL CGP?” You will want to make sure your SWPPP is in compliance with the Construction Generic Permit in Florida, the question of what's required can be broken down into six essential topics that need to be followed.
1 - SWPPP Development
The SWPPP must be prepared following standard industry practices. The FDEP has some guidance documents on how a SWPPP should look, but Cherokee Tribal SWPPP creates SWPPP Log Books that pass all regulatory audits from the FDEP or the MS4 County or City authorities.
2 - SWPPP Implementation/Development
The SWPPP must be prepared prior to submitting your Notice of Intent (NOI). You must implement your SWPPP as soon as you receive authorization of permit coverage.
3 - Document Control
Throughout the life-span of your SWPPP and the CGP permit in Florida, you’ll accumulate a ton of paperwork, from inspections, to revisions, map and certifications. It is important to keep this documentation at the construction site or at an appropriate alternative location, which must be specified on the SWPPP and on your NOI. Cherokee Tribal SWPPP will assure this action takes place.
4 - Keep your SWPPP current
The SWPPP is a living document that always needs to be reflective of the current site conditions. All revisions need to be included in the SWPPP as attachments. Cherokee Tribal SWPPP will assist you in completing this requirement.
5 - Signed & Certified SWPPP Documentation
All contractors and subcontractors identified in the SWPPP must sign a copy of the certification statement agreeing to abide by the rules of the SWPPP before conducting any construction activities at the site.
6 - What's in your SWPPP?
Your SWPPP has to be reflective of the requirements laid out in the Construction Generic Permit in Florida. As far as contents is concerned, it must have at least the following areas and topics described in detail:
Storm Water "Team"
Contracts & Subcontractors
Site / Construction Activities Description
Non-storm water Discharges
Best Management Practices (or Storm water BMPs)
Permanent Storm water Management Controls
Certifications & Signatures

3. What is the purpose of the SWPPP?: The purpose of the SWPPP is to develop a strategy for construction projects to comply with Federal and State storm water regulations. These regulations are put in place to minimize sediment and other pollutants in storm water runoff commonly associated with construction activities.
- BMPs to minimize non-storm water discharges (i.e. concrete waste management, material waste management, good housekeeping practices, etc...)
- Site inspections and BMP maintenance
- Laboratory sampling and analysis
