On September 2, 2012 - any active construction site in California can be held accountable to the requirements of California's new construction storm water pollution laws. The laws are called the "Construction General Permit" or CGP. It is California's implementation of the Federal Clean Water Act also known as NPDES. This may be new to you as it can be a bit confusing. The point of importance to you is that if your project is not completed by 9/2/2012, and you are not currently covered under the CGP - you will be required to be on that date. It can be a serious matter, so you should not put it off. Our company has state certified QSD's (certified to prepare SWPPP documents and BMP plans) as well as QSP's (required by the state for inspection of BMPs and preparation of other on-site reports and plans) to assist you in clarifying whether or not your site needs coverage under the CGP.
How do you find out if your project falls under the provisions of the CGP? Here are some facts that will be helpful.
KAPPA Surveying and Engineering has staff trained and certified with the State of California for preparation of CGP implementation documents as well as inspections that may be required. You can contact KAPPA at (619) 465-8948.
