Construction SWPPP Requirements in Austin, TX

The City of Austin has very strict Stormwater requirements above and beyond that of TCEQ (Texas Commission on Environmental Quality).

All construction projects within City of Austin must submit a plan development application and maintain erosion controls and other measures no matter what they trigger for SWPPP at the TCEQ level .

This means that impacted projects will need a Professional Engineer or experienced COA stormwater inspector, and plan review approved by City Of Austin to do anything and that will include stormwater controls.
