    The Individual Permit for Stormwater

    • Eliminate contaminated stormwater discharges from specified Solid Waste Management Units (SWMUs) and Areas of Concern (AOCs)
    • Use control measures called "best management practices" (BMPs)
    • BMPs include erosion and sediment control measures

    The Site Discharge Pollution Prevention Plan (SDPPP) has three primary objectives:

    • Identify and summarize potential pollutant sources
    • Determine control measures intended to reduce or eliminate pollutants in stormwater discharges
    • Measure the effectiveness of controls

    Public Outreach

    Under the Permit, community groups and their technical advisors have:

    • access to the waste dump sites
    • technical meetings with LANL
    • the opportunity to carefully review and comment on all decisions being made under the new permit

    The agreement provides funding for the community groups to hire experts and obtain technical support to help facilitate their participation in the permitting process.
