    Stormwater Permit for Construction Activities

    Construction activities disturbing one or more acres must have coverage under South Dakota’s General Permit Authorizing Stormwater Discharges Associated with Construction Activities (General Permit). This includes construction support activities* and construction sites that are part of a larger common plan of development or projects being done in phases. If the total area of the plan is over one acre, a permit is required for the duration of the project.

    Construction activities include but are not limited to:

    • Clearing, grading, or excavation;
    • Road or access road construction;
    • Construction of residential, commercial, and industrial buildings or property;
    • Installing cable lines, phone lines, and pipelines (excluding oil/gas pipelines); and,
    • Demolition activities.

    • Concrete or asphalt batch plants;
    • Equipment staging yards;

    • Excavated material disposal areas; and/or,
