  3. Develop your site-specific written Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plan (SWP3) for your facility/site. This is completed in accordance to regulatory requirements that includes:

    • a Site Assessment to determine how the regulations affect your facility;

    • a determination of Existing Management Practices and required changes to comply with the plan;
