Construction Guidance
The Arizona Department of Environmental Quality’s (ADEQ) Phase II Arizona Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (AZPDES) Construction General Permit authorizes stormwater discharges from large and small construction-related activities that result in a total land disturbance of equal to or greater than 1 acre, where those discharges enter surface waters of the U.S. or a storm drain.  The goal of this permit is to reduce or eliminate stormwater pollution from construction activity through development and implementation of an appropriate stormwater pollution prevention plan (SWPPP).Operators of construction falling under the above designation are required to:
  • Submit a Notice of Intent (NOI) to ADEQ
  • Prepare a site specific SWPPP
  • Submit a Notice of Termination (NOT) to ADEQ when final stabilization of the site has been achieved or when another operator has assumed control of the site. 
**The Town of Marana requests SWPPP’s submitted to the Town for review be provided in book format including necessary attachments indicated on the SWPPP checklist below. 
Below are some resources to assist operators in obtaining coverage under this permit. All Resources are in PDF format and will open in a new browser window.
