Arizona Stormwater

Arizona State Overview

Stormwater runoff (discharge) from Arizona construction sites is regulated under section 402 of the Clean Water Act (CWA).  Section 402 outlines the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permitting program.  The Arizona Department of Environmental Quality (ADEQ) governs stormwater and non stormwater related discharges from construction sites under the Arizona Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (AZPDES) permitting program. The AZPDES General Permit for Stormwater Discharges Associated With Construction Activity requires owners or operators of construction sites to apply for AZPDES General Permit coverage if his/her project site will incorporate: (1) land disturbing activities equal to, or greater than one (1) acre; and (2) construction activities involving less than one (1) acre of land disturbing activity but is part of a common plan of development or sale equal to or greater than one (1) acre.

The rules and regulations associated with AZPDES General Permit for Construction Activities is intended to protect the natural water resources of the State of Arizona.  These regulations are vital to Arizona’s effort to protect and improve water quality within the state.

Low Impact Development and the Basics of Bioretention

Type: Webinar | Price: $0.00

Begin Now Learn More

Program Overview

Low Impact Development (LID) embodies a paradigm shift in how land is developed and how storm water is managed from that development. LID is achieved through the implementation of techniques that mimic pre-development hydrologic conditions by addressing storm water runoff at the source point versus the “end of the pipe.” The bioretention system, which reduces runoff volumes while decreasing pollutant loads found in nonpoint source flow, represents one of the most commonly applied Low Impact Development devices in green infrastructure today. This webinar will introduce the basics of bioretention systems, how they work, why they work and how they can save on project costs.
