    1. PLANNINGANDORGANIZATION 1.1 Introduction

    TheErnest A. Love Field/Prescott Municipal Airport (the Airport) is eligible to be covered under the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality (ADEQ) Arizona Pollutant Discharge Elimination System General Permit for Stormwater Discharges Associated with Industrial Activity from Non-Mining Facilities to Waters of the United States (herein referred to as the General Permit). The General Permit became effective on February 1, 2011, and expires on January 31, 2016. The General Permit authorizes stormwater discharges associated with ADEQdefinedindustrialactivities.UndertheGeneralPermit,theAirportiscategorizedasanOtherEligibleDischarger.Thatis,afacilitythatisinoperationpriortotheeffectivedateoftheGeneralPermit,butdidnotobtaincoverageundertheMSGP2000oranotherAZPDESpermit.Assuch,theAirportmustdevelopa StormWaterPollutionPreventionPlan (SWPPP)document to complywith theGeneral Permit and apply for coverage. Coveragewill begin upon ADEQ issuance of anAuthorizationtoDischarge.ASWPPP isdesigned to identify structuralandnonstructural controls thatwillbeput inplaceasmeans tominimizenegative impacts to theenvironment thatmaybe causedbystormwaterdischargesfromthesubjectproperty. TheSWPPPestablishesproceduresforminimizingthepotentialforpollutantstobecarriedawayinstormwaterdischarges.Theseprocedures emphasize the use of Best Management Practices (BMPs) to provide theflexibility to address varying sources of pollutants at different categories of industrialfacilities(inthiscase,apublicuseairport).PreparationoftheErnest A. Love Field/Prescott Municipal Airport SWPPPwasbasedupontheexistingconditionsattheairportinSeptember,2011withreferencetoexistingavailablemappinganddocuments thatwereprovidedby theAirport,aswellas site investigationsandinterviewswithAirportpersonnelandtenants.Workwasaccomplished inaccordancewiththerequirementsofFAAAdvisoryCircularAC150/532015A,datedSeptember8,2008.

    1.2GoverningLawIn 1972, Congress passed the Clean Water Act (CWA). The CWA seeks to protect andimprovethequalityofthenation'swaters.Towardthisend,theCleanWaterActprohibitsthe discharge of any pollutants to waters of the United States unless that discharge isauthorized by aNational PollutantDischarge Elimination System (NPDES) permit. InitialeffortsundertheNPDESprogramfocusedonreducingpollutantsindischargesofindustrialprocess wastewater and municipal sewage. As pollution control measures wereimplemented, it became evident that there were other sources contributing to thedegradationofwaterquality.In1990, theU.S.EnvironmentalProtectionAgency (EPA)published regulationsgoverningstorm water discharges under the NPDES program. These regulations established

    requirements forpermitting stormwaterdischarges from industrial facilities,constructionsites,andmunicipalstormsewersystems(notaffiliatedwiththeAirportsystem).InDecember2002,EPAdelegated theStatesNPDESstormwaterprogram to theArizonaDepartmentofEnvironmentalQuality (ADEQ).Atthattime,thestormwaterprogramwasrenamedtheArizonaPollutantDischargeEliminationSystem(AZPDES).Polluted stormwater runoff is a leading cause of loweredwater quality in our State. Inresponse to this problem, the ADEQ established requirements to control storm waterdischargesthatcouldharmthequalityofwaterwaysandwashesinArizona.

    1.3ObjectivesThe objectives of the Ernest A. Love Field/Prescott Municipal Airport SWPPP are as follows: a. Identify potential sources of storm water and non-storm water contamination to the

    storm water drainage system; b. Identify and prescribe appropriate "source area control" best management practices

    (BMPs) designed to prevent storm water contamination; c. Identify and prescribe "storm water treatment" BMPs to reduce pollutants in

    contaminated storm water prior to off-airport discharge (if applicable); d. Prescribe actions needed either to bring non-storm water discharges under applicable

    permit or to remove these discharges from the storm drainage system; e. Prescribe an implementation schedule so as to ensure that the storm water

    management actions prescribed in the SWPPP are carried out and evaluated on a regular basis.

    1.4ConsistencywithOtherPlans

    The SWPPP has been prepared in conformance with the ADEQ General Permit, inaccordance with the requirements of FAA Advisory Circular AC 150/532015A, datedSeptember8,2008.
