Construction

The Construction BMP Online Handbook is an interactive online reference that provides the information you need to stay in compliance with California stormwater regulations for a construction general permit, with detailed monitoring guidance and inspection forms, including the SWPPP Template. The printed 2003 version of the Construction BMP Handbook became obsolete in 2009 when the handbook became an online subscription product. Purchasing a subscription to the Construction BMP Online Handbook assures that you are getting the latest version of the handbook (Jan 2015).

SWPPP Template Information

The template is available in both a .pdf and a .doc version:

  • The .doc version gives users the ability to fill in background information in the indicated areas or delete content that is not appropriate for their facilities - the .pdf version is not editable.
  • Both versions include instructions, but the instructions in the Word document are as hidden text. Hidden text can be turned on or off by clicking the Show button (¶ symbol) in the top row of the document menu bar. 

Subscription Notes:

Construction BMP Online Handbook annual subscriptions are available for individuals (CASQA members and non-members) as well as for groups (CASQA members only). 

  • CASQA membership does not include a subscription to the BMP Online Handbooks (including the SWPPP Templates), however, CASQA members receive reduced subscription rates.
