If you’re responsible for managing stormwater permitting or developing a stormwater pollution prevention plan, it’s vital that you go through SWPPP training to understand what types of permits are needed for different work sites, how these permits can be obtained, and the best management practices for developing an SWPP plan.
At Curve Compliance, our instructors are experienced in the industrial and construction field in a variety of areas. We offer SWPPP training as well as conduct stormwater inspections to make sure your management system is up to date and compliant. We will also work with you to bring your SWPPP up to regulation.

State And Federal Regulations
SWPPP regulations are managed at either a state or federal level. Depending on where you live and work, you will need to receive specific training for your state. Forty-five U.S. states manage SWPPP regulations and permits, while only a few locations follow federal requirements.
You will learn about federal requirements in your SWPPP training if you are from the following locations:
- New Hampshire
- New Mexico
- The District of Columbia
- Tribal island with U.S. territory
- Puerto Rico
- Virgin Islands
State-level SWPPP requirements will be presented on the following states for those working in these locations:
- New Jersey
- New York
- North Carolina
- North Dakota
- Rhode Island
- South Carolina
- South Dakota
- West Virginia
You will learn about the specific components, concepts, and requirements for SWPP plans and permits for your state, whether they be regulated at the state level or at the federal level.
While we will go over regulations and best practices for SWPP plans in SWPPP training, you may bring an SWPP plan you already have. This is a great opportunity to get feedback on systems that you already have in place and constructive input on how to improve it so that you can comply with all standards and regulations for SWPP plans in your state.
If you don’t have an SWPP plan in place yet, you will learn about regulations, requirements for permits, and best management practices to form an effective and safe SWPP plan in your state.
Note: As of January 1, 2017, Bexar County/SAWS and TCEQ issued new regulations for stormwater pollution prevention plans. In light of this, we offer inspections to make sure your SWPP plan is still in compliance, and will offer suggestions to improve it to comply with the new standards.
Our SWPPP training program is structured to teach you the information you need to to remain in compliance with health and safety standards while still remaining engaging and enjoyable. We present information through training modules, hands-on exercises, open discussions, and course handouts for future reference.
Through our SWPPP training, you will become certified to lead SWPPP permitting, plan development and improvements for SWPP plans, and implement health and safety compliance strategies that are effective and sustainable.
As you go through training, we will cover a variety of topics to give you a better understanding of regulations, why those regulations exist, and business practices and SWPP plans that will keep you in compliance with health and safety standards.
