SWPPP revisions are necessary to address any physical or operational changes at the facility, significant changes to the existing BMPs, changes to discharge and sampling locations, and changes in the Pollution Prevention Team. SWPPP updates are needed whenever a Level 1 or Level 2 Exceedance Response Action (ERA) is required. An updated SWPPP must be submitted and certified on SMARTS. If no updates are made to the SWPPP, the Discharger is not required to resubmit the SWPPP on SMARTS.
Yes, we offer Premium Sampling services in most areas depending on our availability.
A monthly visual Best Management Practices (BMP) and Non-Storm Water Discharge (NSWD) Observation must be performed and documented once per month during operating hours on a day without precipitation. A minimum of 12 observations, one for each month, must be completed and retained on-site. When Frog visits your site, we will complete the Monthly Observation for that month. Additionally, a Sample Event Visual Observation must be completed whenever a storm water sample is collected.

If Frog hasn’t contact you about your exceedance(s), please call our office to discuss BMP strategies to prevent future Numeric Action Level (NAL) exceedances.
Yes, facilities can qualify for a sample frequency reduction. Facilities that do not have NAL/TNAL/NEL exceedances for four (4) consecutive QSEs, and are in full compliance with the General Permit requirements, are allowed to decrease sampling frequency from four samples per reporting year to two. If applicable, joining a compliance group is another way to reduce sample frequency from four to two samples per reporting year. Contact Frog for our compliance group options.
Please call our office to schedule a sample pickup ASAP, or email: firstname.lastname@example.org. Also, make sure to fill out your Sample Event Visual Observation and keep it onsite in your Monitoring binder.
Annual Reports are required to be submitted and certified on SMARTS by July 15th of every reporting year.

If the rain event produces a discharge for at least one drainage area, which is preceded by 48 hours with no discharge from any drainage area, then your facility is required to sample unless the required number of samples have already been collected. Samples from each discharge location shall be collected within four (4) hours of discharge or the start of facility operations if the QSE occurs within the previous 12-hour period. The discharge should be enough to fill up all of your required bottles. Please do not force a sample or sample standing water.
