Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP) Templates
The existing SWPPP template is available here: Construction Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP) Template (WORD) - Helps construction site operators develop a SWPPP that is compliant with the minimum requirements of EPA's 2017 Construction General Permit (CGP).

EPA’s SWPPP resources help operators develop effective stormwater plans that are required under construction stormwater permits. Note that construction site SWPPPs must follow the requirements of the applicable state or EPA CGP, and it must describe the specific conditions of the site and plans for development.  Click here to see the areas of the country where EPA is responsible for issuing NPDES stormwater permits.

Links to these resources are also available on EPA's construction stormwater resources, tools, and templates page.
