Construction Activity

To comply with Iowa’s Storm Water Discharge regulations a Storm Water Discharge Permit must be obtained.  Storm Water General Permit No. 2 is for storm water discharge at construction sites.

Obtaining a General Permit

  1. Develop and implement a Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plan
  2. Make a Public Notice
  3. Submit a Notice of Intent (NOI) and Permit Fee

Once these three steps have been successfully completed the facility will be considered covered under the General Permit and storm water discharge can commence.
