Stormwater Site Plan Templates

Stormwater Management Manual Short Forms 

Below are combined Stormwater Site Plan (SSP) and Construction Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP) Report Templates that can be used for smaller projects.  These are projects that typically will not trigger the need to install stormwater facilities to meet the intent of Minimum Requirement #6 (Water Quality), Minimum Requirement #7 (Flow Control), or Minimum Requirement #8 (Wetlands Protection). 


The short forms are not intended to replace the contents of the Stormwater Management Manual (SWMM) but are intended to provide an easy to use form that will help applicants comply with the minimum requirements of the SWMM.  There are separate forms for discharges to freshwater bodies and discharges to saltwater bodies.  Use the form appropriate for your project.


Combined SSP/SWPPP – Freshwater

Combined SSP/SWPPP – Marine
