Stormwater Best Management Practices (BMPs)

The General Permit requires SLAC to describe stormwater management controls appropriate for the facility. BMPs are part of the SLAC stormwater management controls and are employed to reduce stormwater contamination (and the potential for contamination).

BMPs can be simple and low cost (such as keeping work areas clean and free of debris), or costly (such as installing structural controls). Most BMPs are preventive and have been previously implemented at SLAC as prudent practices or as requirements of ESH regulations.

The BMPs minimize the impact of activities that potentially contribute contaminants to stormwater discharges. Associate Directors are responsible for ensuring that BMPs are followed within their respective divisions.
