Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plan Program
All of GM's project managers and superintendents have undergone extensive training in Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plans (SWPPPs) and implement the appropriate best management practices on projects that are subject to NPDES requirements. Field supervisors are also required to complete a review course prior to assignment to any project requiring coverage under the Construction General Permit. All SWPPPs are drafted in-house utilizing the latest information available from the EPA and the New Mexico Environment Department concerning changes in requirements or inspection procedures. Routine audits and field training sessions are conducted by GM on each project subject to this coverage and an incentive program is in place to motivate and reward compliance efforts.
