Are you ready for the construction stormwater permit renewal?

Cardinal Strategies wants to remind you that the deadline for the new Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) Construction General Permit is fast approaching on June 3. We're here to help you renew this for your large or small construction site.

You'll need to either file for a new NOI if your site will not be stabilized and completed by June 3rd or file a NOT to close out the current permit.

Take a look at more information below for both cases.

If you're meeting final stabilization by June 3, 2018:

Status of permit coverage

If construction will be complete and final stabilization achieved within the 90-day grace period, submit NOT to TCEQ.

Update your SWPPP
  • Add a copy of NOT to your SWPPP
  • Document final stabilization dates and date of BMP removal
  • Maintain a copy of the SWPPP for three years after NOT
Notify MS4
  • If construction will be complete and final stabilization achieved within the 90-day grace period, inform your inspector and email or mail the NOT to the city
  • Communicate any updates or questions to your inspector
On your site
  • For sites that will be terminating coverage, ensure that final stabilization is met by June 3, 2018
  • Remove any and all temporary BMPs

For more information, visit TCEQs website at https://www.tceq.texas.gov/permitting/stormwater/construction.
