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. A public meeting was held on September 18, 2017 and the public comment period ended the same day. The Executive Director will summarize the formal comments and prepare a written response to comments (RTC). This RTC will be made available to the public and will also be mailed to those who submitted written comments or formal comments at the public meeting. The proposed 2018 CGP and draft fact sheet are available on the Stormwater General Permit webpage.

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).
