SWPPP Design Services


SWPPP Design Services.

All of our SWPPP designs are certified by Professional Engineers (PE) that are Certified Professionals in Erosion and Sediment Control (CPESC). This is required by the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) under Supplemental Specification 832 – Temporary Sediment and Erosion Control.


At Coyle SWPPP Professionals, we provide creative solutions to storm water and erosion challenges by applying innovative engineering principles and cost-effective construction services. We approach every challenge in a manner consistent with client needs and budget. We partner with you to develop a SWPPP design that will not only ensure you meet all local and state regulations, but will also save you time and money.


Ensuring Compliance.

If you are responsible for ensuring NPDES compliance for your construction site then Coyle SWPPP Professionals are here to help. The Ohio EPA Construction General Permit and ODOT Supplemental Specification 832 have specific requirements for SWPPP (Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plan) design and erosion and sediment control installation, maintenance and inspections. Lack of compliance with regulations can leave your company open to potential penalties, often resulting in major delays and fines.

A SWPPP is required by your construction general permit and will help you prevent storm water pollution while ensuring compliance. A SWPPP is more than just an erosion and sediment control plan. It includes all of the construction site operator's activities to prevent stormwater contamination, control sedimentation and erosion, and comply with the requirements of the Clean Water Act.

Compliance under the NPDES Industrial General Permit requires the elimination of non-storm water discharges to the storm drain system, development of a site-specific Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP), and monitoring of discharges.

What We Do.

Our storm water experts are experienced in the development of SWPPPs for construction sites and industrial facilities.


We evaluate each site and design cost-effective Best Management Practices (BMPs) based on the potential pollutant sources. We design all our plans with AutoCAD and Trimble Business Center and make sure they meet all the state and local regulations.

Temporary Access Fills (TAF) and Stream Crossing

A TAF or Temporary Access Fill is a non-erodible fill in a water of the U.S. or State that facilitates construction access for a short period of time – usually less than 2 years.   This is often needed for a causeways, cofferdams, access pads, sheet piling, temporary bridges, access fills, etc.

Materials becomes a “fill” when placed below the Ordinary High Water Mark (OHWM) as defined by the US Army Corps of Engineers (33 CFR 328.3(e).   The OHWM depends on a number of variables including vegetation, region, scour, disturbance, litter deposition, shelving and individuals.

At Coyle SWPPP Professionals, we can assistance in the design and management of TAFs.  Our designs will meet the requirements of ODOT SS 832 and the project’s waterway special provisions.  It is imperative that only the footprint area (acreage), linear impact limits and volume of temporary fill as permitted and contained in the Waterway Special Provisions be followed.  We will work with you to ensure compliance.   

Our SWPPP design services also include:


  • On-site meetings with project personnel to review the contents of and implementation of the SWPPP
  • Assistance in the preparation and submittal of the Notice of Intent (NOI) or the Co-Permittee NOI and the Notice of Termination (NOT) to the Ohio EPA
  • Design of appropriate BMPs for your site that will meet specifications and payment limitations
  • Create a map of your facility to locate pollution sources and identity BMPs implemented
  • Storm water pollution prevention training for all essential employees
  • Development of storm water monitoring program
  • An inspection program that can occur weekly, monthly, bi-monthly, or as needed; whatever your budget will allow
  • Revisions to the SWPPP are a part of our inspection services. This will ensure the most up-to-date plan, keeping you in compliance

Upon completion of the project, transfer of ownership, or other change we will assist in filing all applicable forms, such as the Notice of Termination (NOT), as necessary to minimize or omit the owners' liability under the Construction General Permit. We will also assist the site superintendent throughout the process to ensure proper deployment of BMPs.


The format and content of our SWPPPs have been approved by the EPA, Ohio Department of Transportation, Sanitation District 1 of Northern Kentucky and respective local authorities.
