Assistance Tools for Construction Stormwater General Permits

Resources for small businesses and local governments that can help them comply with construction stormwater permits.

Stormwater runoff from construction activities can have a significant impact on water quality. As stormwater flows over a construction site, it picks up pollutants like sediment, debris, and chemicals, and deposits them in creeks, streams, rivers, lakes, etc. The Stormwater Permitting Program requires operators of construction sites that disturb one or more acres of land to obtain permit coverage.

The TCEQ Small Business and Local Government Assistance section developed the following tools to help construction-site owners and operators comply with stormwater permitting requirements. The documents on this page are in various file formats (help downloading files).

Important information  The TCEQ is in the process of renewing the 2013 Stormwater Construction General Permit which will expire on March 4, 2018, at midnight. The public has an opportunity to submit comments on the proposed permit during the formal public comment period that is scheduled from August 18, 2017 thru September 18, 2017. The public meeting will be held on September 18, 2017 at 1:30 p.m. at TCEQ Campus, 12100 Park 35 Circle, Building E, Room 201S, Austin, Texas 78753. The draft permit will be posted in the Texas Register and will be available on the Stormwater Permits webpage on August 18, 2017.

PLEASE NOTE: Permittees with current (active) authorizations should not attempt to renew their authorization before the new permit has been issued and made effective on March 5, 2018. Permittees with current authorizations will have a 90-day grace period to renew their authorizations starting on March 5, 2018.



To obtain the following forms, go to the TCEQ Forms Web page and search for the form number indicated (in parentheses).
