Construction Stormwater General Permit (CSGP)
“As of December 18, 2021, Indiana no longer administers the construction stormwater program under Indiana Administrative Code (327 IAC 15-5 or Rule 5). Permitting coverage is now issued under the Construction Stormwater General Permit (CSGP). The CSGP is a performance-based regulation designed to reduce pollutants that are associated with construction and/or land-disturbing activities.” For a more in depth look at the new permit and the changes that have been made, Christopher B. Burke Engineering has produced a webinar that can be viewed here.
To be in compliance with local ordinances and State of Indiana rules in Elkhart County, please follow the Compliance Process for Elkhart County.
The Elkhart County SWCD is an agent of IDEM for all CSGP, as well as the contact for the Greater Elkhart County Stormwater Partnership on all MS4 Construction sites.
