The SWPPP has two major objectives

(1) to help identify the sources of sediment and other pollutants that affect the quality of storm water discharges;and (2) to describe and ensure the implementation of BMPs to reduce or eliminate sediment and other pollutants in storm water and non-storm water discharges.
