ODEQ issuance of Final Construction Stormwater General Permit
The ODEQ has issued the final General Permit OKR10 for Stormwater Discharges from Construction Activities with an effective date of October 18, 2017. The permit and response to comments are available through the ODEQ links below.
A summary of the changes from the existing permit is included on page 3 of the Fact Sheet. Some of the more significant changes to the draft permit include:
Requirements for controlling stormwater volume.
Requirements for track-out controls for vehicles exiting a site.
Requirements for the maintenance of sediment basins and impoundments.
Requirement to keep waste container lids closed when not in use.
Additionally, construction activities at gas plants (SIC Code 1321) and oil and gas field services for company base operations (SIC Code 1389) that disturb more than one acre are also required to be permitted with the ODEQ for construction stormwater discharges.
Following the October 18, 2017 effective date, we have 90 days to revise your SWPPP, submit a new Notice of Intent to the ODEQ and pay the permit and application fees.
