Stormwater Requirements

Stormwater Requirements when building in Midvale City
  1. Will the project require a NOI/SWMP/SWPPP to be filed with the Utah DEQ? Visit the Utah DEQ website for information pertaining to the project being constructed.
  2. If the site/project does not need an NOI, the site will still require Minimum Control Measures (MCM) to be implemented and maintained as if the site had an NOI attached to the project and the following requirements will need to be met.
  3. Include an Erosion Control/SWPPP plan in your submittal to Midvale City for review and comment. Include detail sheet of intended BMPs to be used specific to the building site.
  4. Once plans have been approved, stamped and dated, a Preconstruction Meeting MUST be scheduled prior to any activity on the site. This includes demolition, grubbing, grading, etc.
  5. Following the Preconstruction Meeting, schedule an appointment with the Stormwater Coordinator for an ON-SITE “Preconstruction Inspection” to be conducted. This inspection will be for proper installation and locations of BMPs pertaining to the site and the SWPPP documents, mapping for the site.
  6. Operator for the site will be responsible to conduct daily visual inspections pertaining to the SWPPP requirements at the site.
    1. All personnel working on the site must have training on IDDE/Stormwater Pollution Prevention. This training must be documented and available upon request by a Stormwater Inspector of the City, State or Government agency.
    2. All SWPPP/SWMP Documents must be available upon request within a “reasonable time frame”.
    3. A sign board must be posted on the site with the following information
      1. UTRC or UTRH # given to the site from the DEQ.
      2. Copy of the NOI
      3. 24hr contact information for the site.
      4. Information as to the location of the SWPPP documents, inspection reports for the site.
  7. Scheduled SWPPP inspections conducted by Midvale City Personnel will be conducted on either a weekly, by-weekly or Monthly schedule until project is completed.
  8. If deficiencies are identified during a City inspection, a timeframe will be given to have the deficiencies corrected in order to bring the site back into compliance. Special attention will be given to wet weather conditions and forecasts that will be time sensitive. If the described deficiencies are not completed within the time given in the inspection report, Midvale City will have the right to administer a “STOP WORK ORDER”. Once the deficiencies have been corrected a follow-up inspection will be conducted by the City Inspector to allow work to begin once the site has come back into compliance.
  9. When the site is 70% stable near the end of the project, a NOT (notice of termination) must be made to the original NOI through the DEQ. The Midvale City Inspector will conduct an inspection to determine if the project has met the requirements for the acceptance of the NOT. If the project is not deemed ready, such deficiencies will be in the inspection report identifying those issues. Once the site NOT has been approved and accepted, a signature will be given for a Certificate of Occupancy.
  10. Straw, sand, and gravel wattles are not acceptable Best Management Practices (BMPs) in Midvale City. Learn about the preferred BMPs for pollution prevention at the construction site.
