San Antonio Water Systems Updates Storm Water Requirements- June 2014

The code changes that were approved by the City of San Antonio Council on June 12th 2014 are as follows:

*All storm water pollution prevention plan (SWPPP) documents will be required to be signed and sealed by an engineer with competence in this area, or by a Certified Professional in Erosion and Sediment Control (CPESC), or other registered/certified professionals with competence in this area or required by the state of Texas or TCEQ.
*The definition of qualified inspector has been changed to “A person with a credible certification or skills such as Certified Erosion Sediment and Storm Water Inspector (CESSWI) or Certified Inspector of Sediment and Erosion Control (CISEC) or equal certification program that demonstrates proficiency in evaluating interpreting and implementing best management practices and elements of a SWPPP”
*Ongoing inspections of all erosion/sediment controls and directions for maintenance and/or repair must be performed by qualified inspectors that meet the new definition as listed above. It will be acceptable for a qualified inspector with an approved “in-training” status to conduct site inspections under the direction of a fully certified individual. Additionally all qualified inspectors will be required to attend and receive a certificate of completion to the SAWS TPDES Inspector Training Workshop.
*The definition of construction activity was changed to: any land being modified by either excavation or by material placement which will disturb the existing mantle of soil. Prior to any modification to the existing soil mantle, the owner of the property must meet city requirements for grading and drainage on property modifications.
*A Water Pollution Abatement Plan (WPAP) which identifies and implements appropriate measures to reduce pollutants in storm water discharges into sensitive areas of the Edwards Aquifer will be required to be available at the site during the construction process.
* Primary and secondary operators will be required to provide all required notices such as constructions site notices, TCEQ permits and notices of termination to SAWS. Before permit coverage is terminated, a required final inspection will occur with SAWS staff to ensure final stabilization requirements have been met.
