Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP) Requirements

For all construction projects that will disturb more than one acre of land area the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) requires operators to obtain TPDES General Permit coverage for the project. This requires the preparation of a Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP). The City of Farmers Branch requires the SWPPP be submitted to the Public Works Department prior to construction.
