AZPDES General Permit AZG2016-002 for Stormwater Discharges from MS4s
日本一本道a不卡免费ASU owns and operates state-owned storm sewer systems which are similar to separate storm sewer systems in municipalities; therefore, it meets the definition of a Non-Traditional Small MS4. ASU is permitted under the Arizona Pollutant Discharge Elimination System General Permit AZG2016-002 for small Municipal Separate Storm Sewer Systems. The permittee has developed and implemented a Stormwater Management Program that describes policies and procedures that ASU implements to reduce, to the maximum extent practicable, pollutant discharges to and from the Non-Traditional Small MS4 that include:

  1. Public Education and Outreach
  2. Public Involvement and Participation
  3. Illicit Discharge Detection and Elimination
  4. Construction Activity Stormwater Runoff Control
  5. Post-Construction Stormwater Management
  6. Pollution Prevention and Good Housekeeping

Overall responsibility for administering the Permit and SWMP rests with the Capital Programs Management Group. Implementing the SWMP requires participation from multiple departments throughout ASU. Key supporting departments include Asset Management, Environmental Health and Safety, Facilities Management, Grounds Services, Parking and Transit Services and Zero Waste. 

AZPDES Construction General Permit AZG2013-001 for Stormwater Discharge
日本一本道a不卡免费ADEQ requires construction site operators to submit for coverage under the Arizona Pollutant Discharge Elimination System Construction General Permit AZG2013-001 for construction activities that include clearing, grading and excavating that result in land disturbance equal to or greater than one acre or disturbance of less than one acre of land if it is part of a larger common plan of development.

The objective of Construction General Permit AZG2013-001 is to reduce the transport of sediment and other pollutants from construction sites. ASU is different from traditional MS4s in that it is typically the owner of all construction projects within their MS4. ASU’s Capital Programs Management Group oversees all construction projects, maintains an inventory of projects under their management, and enforces AZPDES requirements. Projects are required to be designed and constructed according to ASU’s Project Guidelines. SWMP implementation and enforcement is conducted through the construction contracting process.

日本一本道a不卡免费To obtain coverage under Construction General Permit AZG2013-001:

  • The operator shall develop a Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan before submitting the Notice of Intent for permit coverage and prior to conducting any construction activity.
  • The SWPPP shall be prepared and implemented in accordance with good engineering practices and shall:
    • Identify all potential sources of pollution that may reasonably be expected to affect the quality of stormwater discharges from the construction site.
    • Identify, describe, and ensure implementation of control measures that will be used to reduce pollutants in stormwater discharges from the construction site.
    • Assure compliance with the terms and conditions of this permit; and identify the responsible person for on-site SWPPP implementation.
  • The operator shall submit a complete and accurate AZPDES NOI form to ADEQ electronically via the .

日本一本道a不卡免费Once ADEQ issues a Notice of Intent Certificate Authorization Number, the operator shall:

  • Provide a copy of the Authorization Certificate, Notice of Intent and SWPPP to CSS.
  • Maintain a copy of the Authorization Certificate and SWPPP at the construction site.
  • Maintain copies of Stormwater Inspection reports at the construction site.
  • Implement Best Management Practices outlined in the SWPPP before and during construction.

Stormwater inspections at construction sites
日本一本道a不卡免费ASU’s Erosion, Sediment Control and Grading Policy describes the stormwater inspection and enforcement process. All university construction projects are inspected at four milestones: 

  1. Placement of erosion and sediment control measures.
  2. When sediment control measures are relocated or revised.
  3. Final grading complete.
  4. Final landscaping.

According to the policy, any construction work that is not approved must be corrected and re-inspected before construction may continue to the next stage. Enforcement mechanisms include Stop Work Order and revocation of the Building Permit. Final payment is withheld until the Final Inspection is successfully completed. ASU also maintains the right to report serious violations to ADEQ for prosecution and possible fines.

日本一本道a不卡免费After the construction project is complete, the operator shall:

  • Submit a Notice of Termination to ADEQ within 30 days after final stabilization has been achieved.
  • Submit a copy of the ADEQ Notice of Termination Acknowledgement Letter to CSS.

日本一本道a不卡免费The following activities do not require coverage under the AZPDES Permit AZG2013-001:

  • Routine maintenance performed to maintain the original line and grade, hydraulic capacity or original purpose of the facility and that disturbs less than five acres. By definition, maintenance projects are expected to be short-term and involve minimal mass grading.
  • Construction activities unrelated to earth disturbing activities such as interior remodeling, completion of interiors of structures, etc.
  • Routine earth disturbing activities that are part of the normal day-to-day operation of a completed facility – daily cover for landfills, maintenance of gravel roads or parking areas, landscape maintenance, etc.
  • Re-paving roads if the sub-grade is undisturbed.
  • Geotechnical, environmental, or archeological projects that collectively disturb less than one acre.

Maricopa County Dust Control Permit 
Dust-generating activities with a total disturbed soil surface area of one-tenth acre – 4,356 square feet or more – within Maricopa County is regulated by the Maricopa County Air Quality Department. Dust-generating activity requires a contractor to obtain a valid Dust Control Permit and implement a Dust Control Plan before commencing the dust generating activity. Subcontractors working for a contractor on a dust-generating activity must obtain a Maricopa County Registration Confirmation. Several examples of bare soil disturbance activities requiring a Dust Control Permit:

  • Construction activity.
  • Demolition of buildings.
  • Areas of disturbance such as stockpiles, storage and equipment yards.
  • Planting vegetation on bare soil.
  • Removing and replanting vegetation.

Dust Control Permit Requirements – not limited to this list:

  • CSS must have a copy of the Maricopa County Air Quality Dust Control Permit and Dust Control Plan before an ASU Building Permit is issued.
  • An Asbestos/NESHAP notification is required for the demolition of structures.
  • Contractor must obtain a Dust Control Permit even if the sub-contractor has a Maricopa County Dust Control Registration Confirmation.
  • Dust Control Permit and Dust Control Plan must be posted at the construction site at all times.
  • Dust Control Permits are valid for one year from the date of approval. If one-tenth acre or more remains disturbed at the expiration of the original permit, application must be submitted at least 14 days before the existing Dust Control Permit expires.
  • Changes must be submitted to MCEQ: Permit Plan Change, Permit Acreage Increase Request, Permit Name Change Request, and Dust Control Coordinator Change Notification.
  • Permit Cancellation Request must be submitted to initiate closeout. Maricopa will send inspector to ensure final stabilization has occurred. Permit applicant remains responsible for violations for as long as the permit remains open.
  • Dust Control Log Books must be maintained by the Permittee for 2 years.

Once the Building Permit Application and plans have been distributed for Plan Review, the following list is a description of typical reviews performed. Additional reviews may be required based on project scope.


Review of conformance with Americans with Disabilities Act Accessibilities Guidelines – 2010 ADA. Contact ASU’s Accessibility Compliance Coordinator at 480-965-0705 for additional information.

Asbestos and Lead Review 
Buildings Built Before 1985 – A review is performed by Asbestos Services to ascertain the presence of asbestos-containing materials prior to the start of any operations that disturb building materials. Typical building materials suspected of containing asbestos include, but are not limited to: wall materials – gypsum drywall and plaster, ceiling tiles, ceiling-tile adhesives, floor tiles, floor-tile adhesives, sheet-vinyl floorings, cove-base adhesives, pipe insulation, duct-seam tape, fireproofing, gaskets, caulking of all types and ceramic-tile grouts. If it is determined that asbestos sampling is required, the Building Permit will not be issued until sampling results are concluded to be negative for asbestos. If the sampling results are positive for asbestos and abatement is necessary, the Building Permit will not be issued until the abatement process is complete. The contractor is required to obtain a 10-day NESHAP Notification form from Maricopa County Air Quality Department 10 days prior to the commencement of a renovation project that requires the removal of asbestos. 
Buildings Built 1985 and Later – Limited work which disturbs building materials may be performed provided that total square footage of material to be disturbed does not exceed 160 SF of materials or in the instance of pipe insulation, the linear footage of pipe insulation to be disturbed does not exceed 260 linear feet of insulation. Work that disturbs over 160 SF of materials or disturb pipe insulation over 260 linear feet will require an asbestos review. 
Lead Paint – Painting projects that have paint that was applied prior to 1978 will be reviewed to determine if specific work practices need to be implemented. All sampling and abatement that may be required will be performed before clearance is approved. For additional details, contact ASU’s Asbestos Management Services at 480-965-7739
