To develop within certain jurisdictions located in Warren County, the site owner is required to obtain an Earth Disturbing Permit (EDP) on any project where the proposed disturbed area is greater than one acre. The jurisdictions where our MS4 services are provided, and therefore EDPs issued by Warren Co SWCD, can be found on the Earth Disturbing portion of our website.
To complete an application, site owners will need a Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan (SWP3) prepared along with construction drawings, basin calculations (if applicable), basin operation and maintenance documents, and a completed Earth Disturbing Permit application. A SWP3 template along with the sediment basin compliance tool used for design calculations can be found on the Ohio EPA website. Once the SWP3 has been developed, site owners can apply for a Notice of Intent (NOI) through the Ohio EPA. The NOI permit number is needed on the EDP application. Construction drawings and other related details must also be approved by the engineer overseeing post-construction for a permit to be issued.
All documents can be submitted electronically on our website. Once a full application submission has been received, a member of Warren Co SWCD’s Urban Team will send an email receipt and add it to the review queue. After the disturbed acreage has been verified an invoice will be emailed to the point of contact. Warren SWCD will send either an approval or request for additional information within two weeks of receiving the submittal.
If you have additional questions on preparing the required documents or the application process, please contact out office at (513) 695-1337. We look forward to helping you with your next project!
