1 Official OPP Latest Revision/Review: 5/28/2015 Link to Penn State s Stormwater homepage: ARTICLE 1 - GENERAL 1.1 Intent Since the passage of the Clean Water Act, the quality of our Nation s waters has improved dramatically. Despite this progress, degraded water bodies still exist. According to the 1996 National Water Quality Inventory, approximately 40 percent of surveyed water bodies are still impaired by pollution and do not meet water quality standards. One source of this impairment is polluted storm water runoff. In order to address this problem, the Environmental Protection Agency initiated the two-phased National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) storm water program. Phase I of the program requires operators of medium and large municipal separate storm sewer systems (MS4s), that is, those that generally serve populations of 100,000 or greater, to implement a storm water management program as a means to control polluted discharges from these MS4s. Phase II extends this coverage to certain small MS4s. This includes educational institutions that are located in urbanized areas such as your Penn State Campuses. The NPDES Phase II regulation requires that each affected MS4 incorporate Minimum Control Measures into their normal operation. As part of this requirement, the University must adopt an ordinance that will encode all of our policies regarding storm water issues. The University does not have the legal authority to write and enforce an ordinance as suggested by the NPDES Phase II standard protocol. The University is simply a land owner for this requirement and relies on the Ordinances for each municipality its property lies within. However, this document is an attempt to establish an ordinance like program. The University Campuses of Abington, Altoona, Beaver, Behrend (Erie), Brandywine (Delaware), Greater Allegheny (McKeesport), Harrisburg, Hazelton, Hershey, Lehigh, Penn College, Shenango, University Park, Worthington Scranton, and York are located in Urbanized Areas as defined by the Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4) Stormwater Management Program. This federal (EPA) and state (PaDEP) permit program that requires specific measures dealing with storm water be followed. 1.2 Purpose The purpose of this Program is to promote health, safety, and welfare within the University and its watersheds by minimizing the harm to the environment by stormwater from the campus through provisions designed to:. A. Provide standards to meet NPDES permit requirements. B. Meet legal water quality requirements under state law, including regulations at 25 Pa. Code 93 to protect, maintain, reclaim, and restore the existing and designated uses of the waters of this Commonwealth. C. Preserve the natural drainage systems as much as possible. D. Maintain groundwater recharge to prevent degradation of surface and groundwater quality and to otherwise protect water resources. E. Prevent scour and erosion of stream banks and streambeds. F. Provide proper operation and maintenance of all facilities and all SWM BMPs that are implemented on the University s properties.
2 1.3 Permits A permit or waiver for each of the listed campuses has been obtained: CAMPUS Abington Altoona Beaver Behrend Brandywine Greater Allegheny Harrisburg Hazelton Hershey Medical Center Lehigh Valley Penn College Shenango University Park Worthington/Scranton York PERMIT NUMBER PAG PAG PAG PAG PAI Status unknown PAG PAG PAG PAG PAG PAG PAI PAG PAG Penn State applied for MS4 a permit at Greater Allegheny, but the campus was not issued a permit by the SW Region of PaDEP in A NOI and permit waiver were submitted to PaDEP for Greater Allegheny on September 7, 2012, but no determination has yet been made. These MS4 permits define minimum control measures including: Public Education and Outreach, Public Participation and Involvement, Illicit Discharge Detection and Elimination, Construction Site Runoff Control, Post-construction Stormwater Management in New Development and Redevelopment, Pollution Prevention and Good Housekeeping for Municipal Operations and Maintenance. 1.4 Applicability The MS4 permits cover activities on campus including but not limited to: Proper operation and maintenance of approved stormwater management BMPs, Activities that may contribute non-stormwater discharges, Construction projects by campus personnel and outside contractors, Operations and maintenance activity by campus personnel and outside contractors, Purchased services such as floor cleaning and re-surfacing provided to the campus by outside contractors, All earth disturbances over 5000 square feet including; o New Construction, o Renovations, o Utility projects, o Landscape projects.
3 1.5 Annual Reporting The permit requires an annual report to be submitted to the PaDEP that documents all activities performed during the reporting year. The Director of Business Services at all above listed campuses except for University Park shall be responsible for the annual reports. The Manager of Engineering Services shall be responsible for the annual report at University Park. A list of Best Management Practice (BMP s) can be found at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency web page ARTICLE 2 - DEFINITIONS Certain terms and words used herein shall be interpreted as follows: Accelerated Erosion The removal of the surface of the land through the combined action of human activities and the natural processes, at a rate greater than would occur because of the natural process alone. Best Management Practices (BMPs) Activities, facilities, designs, measures or procedures used to manage stormwater impacts from Regulated Earth Disturbance activities, to meet State Water Quality Requirements, to promote groundwater recharge and to otherwise meet the purposes of this. Stormwater BMPs are commonly grouped into one of two broad categories or measures: structural or nonstructural. Nonstructural BMPs or measures refer to operational and/or behavior-related practices that attempt to minimize the contact of pollutants with stormwater runoff whereas structural BMPs or measures are those that consist of a physical device or practice that is installed to capture and treat stormwater runoff. Structural BMPs include, but are not limited to, a wide variety of practices and devices, from large-scale retention ponds and constructed wetlands, to small-scale underground treatment systems, infiltration facilities, filter strips, bioretention, wet ponds, permeable paving, grassed swales, riparian or forested buffers, sand filters, detention basins, and manufactured devices. Structural stormwater BMPs are permanent appurtenances to the project site. Conservation District The applicable local County Conservation District as defined in Section 3(c) of the Conservation District Law (3 P. S. 851(c)) that has the authority under a delegation agreement executed with DEP to administer and enforce all or a portion of the regulations promulgated under 25 Pa. Code 102. PaDEP The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection. Earth Disturbance Activity A construction or other human activity which disturbs the surface of the land, including, but not limited to, clearing and grubbing, grading, excavations, embankments, road maintenance, building construction and the moving, depositing, stockpiling, or storing of soil, rock or earth materials. Erosion The process by which the surface of the land, including channels, is worn away by water, wind, or chemical action. Erosion and Sediment Control Plan A plan for a project site that identifies BMPs to minimize accelerated erosion and sedimentation. Groundwater Recharge Replenishment of existing natural underground water supplies. Impervious Surface A surface that prevents the infiltration of water into the ground. Impervious surface includes, but is not limited to, any roof, parking or driveway areas, and any new streets and sidewalks. Any surface areas designed to initially be gravel or crushed stone shall be assumed to be impervious surfaces. MS4 Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System.
4 NPDES National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System, the federal government's system for issuance of permits under the Clean Water Act, which is delegated to DEP in Pennsylvania. Outfall "Point source" as described in 40 CFR at the point where the storm sewer system discharges to surface waters of the Commonwealth. Point Source Any discernible, confined and discrete conveyance, including, but not limited to, any pipe, ditch, channel, tunnel, or conduit from which stormwater is or may be discharged, as defined in State regulations at 25 Pa. Code Project Site The specific area of land where any Regulated Earth Disturbance activities on campus are planned, conducted or maintained. Redevelopment Earth Disturbance activities on land that has previously been disturbed or developed. Regulated Activities Any activities that may affect stormwater runoff and any activities that may contribute nonstormwater discharges to a regulated small MS4. Road Maintenance Earth disturbance activities within the existing road cross-section, such as grading and repairing existing unpaved road surfaces, cutting road banks, cleaning or clearing drainage ditches and other similar activities. Separate Storm Sewer System A conveyance or system of conveyances (including roads with drainage systems, streets, catch basins, curbs, gutters, ditches, man-made channels or storm drains) primarily used for collecting and conveying stormwater runoff. State Water Quality Requirements As defined under state regulations -- protection of designated and existing uses (See 25 Pa. Code Chapters 93 and 96)--including: A. Each stream segment in Pennsylvania has a designated use, such as cold water fishery or potable water supply, which are listed in Chapter 93. These uses must be protected and maintained, under state regulations. B. Regulated Earth Disturbance activities must be designed to protect and maintain existing uses and maintain the level of water quality necessary to protect those uses in all streams, and to protect and maintain water quality in special protection streams. C. Water quality involves the chemical, biological, physical, and radiological characteristics of surface water bodies. After Regulated Earth Disturbance activities are complete, those characteristics can be impacted by addition of pollutants such as sediment, and changes in habitat through increased flow volumes and/or rates as a result of changes in land surface area from those activities. Therefore, permanent discharges to surface waters must be managed to protect the stream bank, streambed and structural integrity of the waterway, to prevent these impacts. Stormwater The surface hydrologic response from an area due to a precipitation event, or meteorological event such as a snowmelt event and does not include baseflow. Surface Waters of the Commonwealth Any and all rivers, streams, creeks, rivulets, impoundments, ditches, watercourses, storm sewers, lakes, dammed water, wetlands, ponds, springs, and all other bodies or channels of conveyance of surface water, or parts thereof, whether natural or artificial, within or on the boundaries of this Commonwealth. University The Director of Business Services at all campuses except for University Park. The Manager of Engineering Services or a designee at University Park.
5 Watercourse A channel or conveyance of surface water, such as a stream or creek, having defined bed and banks, whether natural or artificial, with perennial or intermittent flow. Watershed Region or area drained by a river, watercourse or other body of water. ARTICLE 3 - STORM WATER MANAGEMENT FOR WATER QUALITY 3.1 General Requirements for Stormwater Management A. All Regulated Earth Disturbance activities on Campus shall be designed, implemented, operated and maintained to meet the permit, through two elements: 1. Erosion and Sediment control during the earth disturbance activities (e.g., during construction), and 2.

Any stormwater management facility that would be located on a State highway right-of-way, or require access from a state highway, shall be subject to approval by the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PENNDOT). E. Culverts, bridges, storm sewers or any other facilities which must pass or convey flows from the tributary area and any facility which may constitute a dam subject to permit by DEP under 25 Pa. Code Chapter Erosion and Sediment Control during Regulated Earth Disturbance Activities A. No Regulated Earth Disturbance activities on Campus shall commence until approved. B. DEP regulations require an Erosion and Sediment Control Plan for any earth disturbance activity of 5,000 square feet or more, under 25 Pa. Code 102.4(b). C. In addition, under 25 Pa. Code Chapter 92, a DEP "NPDES Construction Activities" permit is required for Regulated Earth Disturbance activities. D. Evidence of any necessary permit(s) for Regulated Earth Disturbance activities from the appropriate DEP regional office or County Conservation District shall be maintained.
6 E. A copy of the Erosion and Sediment Control plan and any required permit(s), as required by Federal or DEP regulations, shall be available at the project site at all times. F. The University has a memorandum with the local Conservation District to assist in coordinating the erosion and sedimentation and NPDES efforts described above. 3.4 Water Quality Requirements after Regulated Earth Disturbance Activities are Complete A. DEP has regulations that require entities to ensure design, implementation, and maintenance of Best Management Practices ("BMPs") that control runoff from new development and redevelopment after Regulated Earth Disturbance activities are complete. These requirements include the need to implement post-construction stormwater BMPs with assurance of long-term operations and maintenance of those BMPs. B. The University intends to follow the local municipalities Post Construction Stormwater Management ordinances for University projects, as required. C. BMP operations and maintenance requirements are described in Article IV. ARTICLE 4 - STORMWATER BMP OPERATIONS AND MAINTENANCE PLAN REQUIREMENTS 4.1 General Requirements A. It is the intent of this Section to insure that all stormwater BMP s are properly operated and maintained by providing a plan for all new facilities. No Regulated Earth Disturbance activities Campus shall commence until approval by the University of BMP Operations and Maintenance plan which describes how the permanent (e.g., post-construction) stormwater BMPs will be properly operated and maintained. B. The following items shall be included in the BMP Operations and Maintenance Plan: Map(s) of the project area the contents of the maps(s) shall include, but not be limited to: a.

The University shall review the BMP Operations and Maintenance Plan for consistency with the purpose and requirements of this Program, and any permits issued by DEP.
7 B. Because of the complexity, number, and gaging program of University owned stormwater facilities, the University has developed an over-riding Inspection Policy for all BMPs, which will be updated as required. ARTICLE 5 - INSPECTIONS AND RIGHT OF ENTRY 5.1 Inspections by Regulators A. Upon presentation of proper credentials, a municipality, DEP, EPA, or County Conservation District staff member may enter at reasonable times upon the University s property to inspect the condition of the stormwater structures and facilities in regard to any permit or plan approval. B. During any stage of the Regulated Earth Disturbance activities, if a municipality, DEP, or County Conservation District staff member, and/or the Manger of Engineering Services or his designee determines that any BMPs are not being implemented in accordance with the approved plan the University may suspend or revoke any existing work, or other approvals until the deficiencies are corrected. ARTICLE 6 PROHIBITIONS 6.1 Prohibited Discharges A. No person on Campus shall allow, or cause to allow, stormwater discharges into the Universities separate storm sewer system which are not composed entirely of stormwater, except (1) as provided in subsection B below, and (2) discharges allowed under a state or federal permit. B. Discharges that may be allowed, based on a finding by the University that the discharge(s) do not significantly contribute to pollution to surface waters of the Commonwealth, are: Discharges from firefighting activities Uncontaminated water from foundation or from footing drains Potable water sources including dechlorinated water line and fire hydrant flushings Flows from riparian habitats and wetlands Lawn watering Irrigation drainage Pavement wash waters where spills or leaks of toxic or hazardous materials have not occurred (unless all spill material has been removed) and where detergents are not used Routine external building wash down (which does not use detergents or other compounds) Air conditioning condensate Water from individual residential car washing Dechlorinated swimming pool discharges Springs Uncontaminated groundwater Water from crawl space pumps Additional examples per the IDDE program document C. In the event that the University determines that any of the discharges identified in Subsection B significantly contribute to pollution of waters of the Commonwealth, or is so notified by DEP, the University will notify the responsible person to cease the discharge. D. Upon notice provided by the University under subsection C, the discharger will have a reasonable time, as determined by the University, to cease the discharge consistent with the degree of pollution caused by the discharge. E. Nothing in this Section shall affect a discharger s responsibilities under state law. F. The University will maintain an Illicit Discharge, Detection and Elimination Program.
8 6.2 Prohibited Connections A. The following connections are prohibited, except as provided in the Section above: 1. Any drain or conveyance, whether on the surface or subsurface, which allows any non-storm water discharge including sewage, process wastewater, and wash water, to enter the separate storm sewer system, and any connections to the storm drain system from indoor drains and sinks; and 2. Any drain or conveyance connected from a commercial or industrial land use to the separate storm sewer system that has not been documented in plans, maps, or equivalent records, and approved by the University. 6.3 Alteration of BMP s A. No person shall modify, remove, fill, landscape or alter any exiting stormwater BMP, unless it is part of an approved maintenance program, without the written approval of the University. B.
