All construction sites must employ Stormwater Pollution Controls (SPCs) and Best Management Practices (BMPs) to prevent pollutants from entering the City of Longmont’s Municipal Separate Storm Sewer (MS4). Even if the work does not require a City of Longmont Stormwater Construction Activity Permit (SCAP), all pollution sources must be controlled with BMPs and the site must be in compliance with all federal, state and local regulations.
A Stormwater Construction Activity Permit (SCAP) from the City of Longmont is required for activities that disturb one or more acres or if the City determines that the construction activity could have a detrimental effect on public health or the environment. Residential individual lot construction that is less than one acre is covered under the Building Permit. Click here to review a flowchart to find out what kind of permit is required. Information pertaining to the SCAP is available in the links below.
No work that disturbs land can begin until the SCAP has been issued!
