No solid (other than sediment) or liquid waste, including building materials, shall be discharged in storm water runoff. Under no circumstance shall wastewater from the washout of concrete trucks, stucco, paint, form release oils, curing compounds, and other construction materials be discharge directly into a drainage channel, storm sewer or surface waters of the state. Also, no pollutants from vehicle fuel, oils, or other vehicle fluids can be discharged to surface waters of the state. The SWP3 must include methods to minimize the exposure of building materials, building products, construction wastes, trash, landscape materials, fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides, detergents, and sanitary waste to precipitation, storm water runoff, and snow melt. The SWP3 shall include measures to prevent and respond to chemical spills and leaks. Site management practices shall be implemented to prevent toxic materials, hazardous materials, or other debris from entering the Community's and state's water resources or wetlands. These practices shall include, but are not limited to, the following:
(a) A covered dumpster shall be made available for the proper disposal of construction site waste materials, garbage, plaster, drywall, grout, gypsum and etc. A second covered dumpster will be provided for the proper disposal of toxic and hazardous wastes.
(b) The washing of excess concrete material into a street, catch basin, or other public facility or natural resource shall not be permitted. A designated area for concrete washouts shall be made available and used for all concrete washouts.
(c) All fuel tanks and drums shall be stored in a marked storage area. A dike shall be constructed around this storage area with a minimum capacity equal to 110% of the volume of the largest container in the storage area. All additional requirements of the local fire authority must be followed. If the fuel tanks have a self-contained "dike," the plug will be kept in the "dike" tank at all times. A mobile fueling spill prevention and response plan must be prepared and followed by all site personnel.
(d) Any toxic or hazardous waste and contaminated soils shall be disposed of properly.
(e) Runoff from contaminated sites shall not be allowed to leave the site.
(f) Proper permits shall be obtained for Development projects on solid waste landfill sites.
Where construction activities are to occur on sites with contamination from previous activities, operators shall be aware that concentrations of materials that meet other criteria (is not considered hazardous waste, meeting Voluntary Action Program (VAP) standards, etc.)may still result in storm water discharges in excess of Ohio Water Quality Standards.
