Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan
This Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan (the "Plan") for the Southwest New Mexico Landfill ("the Landfill") has been developed to satisfy the Permit requirements listed in the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) Multi-Sector General Permit (MSGP) for Industrial Activities. The 2015 MSGP, included as Appendix A, should be reviewed and consulted as needed for guidance and specific questions regarding compliance requirements. The industry-specific requirements for landfills are presented in Part 8.L of the MSGP.
In addition to the development of a Plan, general permits for stormwater discharges associated with industrial activity require the submission of a Notice of Intent (NOI) prior to the authorization of such discharges. A copy of the 2018 NOI, data used to prepare the NOI, and EPA correspondence are maintained in Appendix B.
The purpose of this Plan is to:
- Identify potential sources of pollution, which may reasonably be expected to affect the quality of stormwater discharges from the Landfill
- Assure compliance with the terms and conditions of the 2015 MSGP for industrial activities
- Describe and ensure implementation of practices (i.e., inspections, monitoring, and reporting) which will be used to reduce the pollutants in stormwater discharges from the Landfill
