Best Management Practices (BMPs) in this category are designed to minimize negative impacts to water quality by minimizing storm water pollution resulting from runoff from municipal construction activities.
Tyler's Storm Water Management Program has added a Minimum Control Measure (MCM) for maintaining a master Construction Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP) which will cover all municipal construction activities performed by City departments who utilize the City-owned concrete batch plant within the City's urbanized area.
The MCM will only address construction activities performed by City crews supervised by the City Streets Department. Contracted construction activities will be permitted by the contractor under the Construction General Permit (CGP) TXR 150000 if the disturbed area exceeds 1 acre in size. The City will ensure that the contractors have a separate authorization for storm water discharges through enforcement of the Erosion Control Ordinance (BMP C-1) and Contractor Oversight (BMP GH-13).
