APPENDIX A

ENDANGERED SPECIES GUIDANCE – LARGE CONSTRUCTION GP
I. INSTRUCTIONS
A list of endangered and threatened species that EPA has determined may be affected by the activities covered by the Construction General Permit is available under OTHER LPDES DOCUMENTS in http://www.deq.louisiana.gov/portal/Default.aspx?tabid=243. These species are listed by parish. In order to be eligible for coverage under this permit, operators must:
Determine whether any species listed in this Guidance or critical habitat are in proximity to the facility,
Pursuant to Permit Part I.A.3.e follow the procedures found in this Guidance to protect listed endangered and threatened species and designated critical habitat and determine that the stormwater discharges and BMPs to control stormwater run off covered under this permit meet one or more of the eligibility requirements of Part I.A.3.e.(1) of this permit. Signature and submittal of the Notice of Intent form is deemed to constitute the Operator's compliance with eligibility requirements for permit coverage.
To determine permit eligibility and to avoid unauthorized impacts upon threatened or endangered species or on the critical habitat for those species, you must follow steps 1 through 4 (and 5 if applicable), below when completing the NOI form and when developing the pollution prevention plan.
NOTE: At any step in the determination, applicants may contact the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) for guidance. That request should be in writing and should include a description of the facility and a topographic map depicting the locations of the facility, the proposed construction activities, and the associated stormwater discharges.

(337) 291-3108
STEP 1: DETERMINE IF THE CONSTRUCTION SITE OR ASSOCIATED STORMWATER DISCHARGES ARE WITHIN THE VICINITY OF FEDERALLY LISTED THREATENED OR ENDANGERED SPECIES, OR THEIR DESIGNATED CRITICAL HABITAT.
If either the proposed site or the path of stormwater from the site to the receiving stream is in a parish included on the Endangered Species List, the applicant should proceed to Step 2 below. If, however, neither is located in a listed parish, then the applicant should enter “no” in Section I.D.3 of the NOI, and move on to the next item.
If no species are listed in the site’s parish or if a facility’s parish is not found on the list, the applicant is eligible for permit coverage and may indicate in the Notice of Intent that no species are found in the project area and certify that it is eligible for permit coverage by marking “No” on the NOI. Where a project is located in more than one parish, the lists for all parishes shall be reviewed.

STEP 2: DETERMINE IF ANY SPECIES MAY BE FOUND "IN PROXIMITY" TO THE

CONSTRUCTION ACTIVITY'S STORMWATER DISCHARGES:
A species is in proximity to a construction activity's stormwater discharge when the species is:


  • Located in the path or immediate area through which or over which contaminated point source stormwater flows from construction activities to the point of discharge into the receiving water; or




  • Located in the immediate vicinity of, or nearby, the point of discharge into receiving waters; or




  • Located in the area of a site where stormwater BMPs are planned or are to be constructed.

The area in proximity to be searched/surveyed for listed species will vary with the size and structure of the construction activity, the nature and quantity of the stormwater discharges, and the type of receiving waters. Given the number of construction activities potentially covered by the permit, no specific method to determine whether species are in proximity is required for permit coverage. Instead, operators should use the method or methods which best allow them to determine to the best of their knowledge whether species are in proximity to their particular construction activities. These methods may include:




  • Conducting visual inspections: This method may be particularly suitable for construction sites that are smaller in size or located in non-natural settings such as highly urbanized areas or industrial parks where there is little or no natural habitat, or for construction activities that discharge directly into municipal stormwater collection systems.




  • Contacting the nearest State or Tribal Wildlife Agency or U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) offices. Many endangered and threatened species are found in well-defined areas or habitats. That information is frequently known to State, Tribal, or Federal wildlife agencies.




  • Contacting local/regional conservation groups. These groups inventory species and their locations and maintain lists of sightings and habitats.




  • Conducting a formal biological survey. Larger construction sites with extensive stormwater discharges may choose to conduct biological surveys as the most effective way to assess whether species are located in proximity and whether there are likely adverse effects.




  • Conducting an Environmental Assessment Under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). Some construction activities may require environmental assessments under NEPA. Such assessments may indicate if listed species are in proximity. (Construction General Permit coverage does not trigger NEPA because it does not regulate any dischargers subject to New Source Performance Standards under Section 306 of the Clean Water Act. See CWA  511(c). However, some construction activities might require review under NEPA because of Federal funding or other Federal nexus.)

If no species are in proximity, an operator is eligible for Construction General Permit coverage under Permit Part I.A.3.E.(1)(a).


If listed species are found in proximity to a facility, operators must indicate the location and nature of this presence in the stormwater pollution prevention plan and follow step 3 below.
STEP 3: DETERMINE IF SPECIES OR CRITICAL HABITAT COULD BE ADVERSELY AFFECTED BY THE CONSTRUCTION ACTIVITY'S STORMWATER DISCHARGES OR BY BMPs TO CONTROL THOSE DISCHARGES.
Scope of Adverse Effects: Potential adverse effects from stormwater include:


  • Hydrological. Stormwater may cause siltation, sedimentation or induce other changes in the receiving waters such as temperature, salinity or pH. These effects will vary with the amount of stormwater discharged and the volume and condition of the receiving water. Where a stormwater discharge constitutes a minute portion of the total volume of the receiving water, adverse hydrological effects are less likely.




  • Habitat. Stormwater may drain or inundate listed species habitat.




  • Toxicity. In some cases, pollutants in stormwater may have toxic effects on listed species.

The scope of effects to consider will vary with each site. Operators must also consider the likelihood of adverse effects on species from any BMPs to control stormwater. Most adverse impacts from BMPs are likely to occur from the construction activities. However, it is possible that the operation of some BMPs (for example, larger stormwater retention ponds) may affect endangered and threatened species.


If adverse effects are determined to be not likely, then the operator is eligible for permit coverage under Part I.A.3.e(1)(a).
If adverse effects are likely, operators should follow step 4 below.
STEP 4: DETERMINE IF MEASURES CAN BE IMPLEMENTED TO AVOID ANY ADVERSE EFFECTS:
If an operator determines that adverse effects cannot be ruled out or are likely, it can receive coverage if appropriate measures are undertaken to avoid or eliminate any actual or potential adverse effects prior to applying for permit coverage. These measures may involve relatively simple changes to construction activities such as re-routing a stormwater discharge to bypass an area where species are located, relocating BMPs, or limiting the size of construction activity that will be subject to stormwater discharge controls.
At this stage, operators must contact the FWS (or the National Marine Fisheries Service if referred to that Service by FWS) to see what appropriate measures might be suitable to avoid or eliminate adverse impacts to listed species and/or critical habitat. (See 50 CFR 402.13(b)). This can entail the initiation of informal consultation with the FWS (and/or NMFS, if appropriate) which is described in more detail below at step 5.
If operators adopt measures to avoid or eliminate adverse effects, they must continue to abide by them during the course of permit coverage. These measures must be described in the stormwater pollution prevention plan and may be enforceable as permit conditions.
If appropriate measures to avoid the likelihood of adverse effects are not available to the operator, the operator should follow step 5 below.
STEP 5: DETERMINE IF THE ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS OF PART I.A.3.E.(1)(b)-(e) CAN BE MET.
Where adverse effects are likely, the operator must contact FWS. Operators may still be eligible for permit coverage if any likelihood of adverse effects is addressed through meeting the criteria of Part I.A.3.e.(1)(b)-(e) of the permit if:


  • I.A.3.e.(1)(b). The operator's activity has received previous authorization through an earlier Section 7 consultation or issuance of a Endangered Species Act (ESA) Section 10 permit (incidental taking permit) and that authorization addressed stormwater discharges and/or BMPs to control stormwater runoff (e.g., developer included impact of entire project in consultation over a wetlands dredge and fill permit under Section 7 of the ESA).

OR


  • I.A.3.e.(1)(c). The operator's activity was previously considered as part of a larger, more comprehensive assessment of impacts on endangered and threatened species and /or critical habitat under Section 7 or Section 10 of the Endangered Species Act which accounts for stormwater discharges and BMPs to control stormwater runoff (e.g., where an area-wide habitat conservation plan and Section 10 permit is issued which addresses impacts from construction activities including those from stormwater or a NEPA review is conducted which incorporates ESA Section 7 procedures).

OR


  • I.A.3.e.(1)(d). Consultation with the FWS (or NMFS, if appropriate) for the operator's stormwater discharges and BMPs to control stormwater runoff results in either: 1) FWS/NMFS written concurrence with a finding of no likelihood of adverse effects (see 50 CFR 402.13) or 2) issuance of a biological opinion in which FWS (or NMFS) finds that the action is not likely to jeopardize the continued existence of listed endangered or threatened species or result in the adverse modification or destruction of critical habitat (see 50 CFR 403.14(h)).

Any terms and conditions developed through consultations to protect listed species and critical habitat must be incorporated into the pollution prevention plan. As noted above, operators must initiate consultation during Step 4 above (upon becoming aware that endangered and threatened species are in proximity to the facility).


OR


  • I.A.3.e.(1)(e). The operator's activity was considered as part of a larger, more comprehensive site-specific assessment of impacts on endangered and threatened species by the owner or other operator of the site when it developed a SWPPP and that permittee met the eligibility requirements stated in items I.A.3.e.(1)(a), (b), (c), or (d) of the permit (e.g., owner was able to determine there would be no adverse impacts for the project as a whole under item (a), so contractor meets the eligibility requirements stated in item (e)). Utility companies applying for area-wide permit coverage meet the eligibility requirements stated in item (e) since authorization to discharge is contingent on a principal operator of a construction project having been granted coverage under this, or an alternative LPDES permit for the areas of the site where utilities installation activities will occur.

The determination of eligibility under the conditions of permit Parts I.A.3.e.(1) (b)-(e) shall be documented in the facility's SWPPP and copies of all applicable documents, such as FWS approval letters, included in the SWPPP. The operator must comply with any terms and conditions imposed under the eligibility requirements of permit Parts I.A.3.e.(1)(a), (b), (c), (d), (e) to ensure that stormwater discharges or BMPs to control stormwater runoff are protective of listed endangered and threatened species and/or critical habitat. Such terms and conditions must be incorporated in the operator’s stormwater pollution prevention plan.


If the eligibility requirements of Part I.A.3.e.(1)(a)-(e) cannot be met then the operator may not receive coverage under this permit. Operators should then consider applying to LDEQ for an individual permit.
This permit does not authorize any taking (as defined under Section 9 of the Endangered Species Act) of endangered or threatened species unless such takes are authorized under Sections 7 or 10 the Endangered Species Act. Operators who believe their construction activities may result in takes of listed endangered and threatened species should be sure to get the necessary coverage for such takes through an individual consultation or Section 10 permit.
This permit does not authorize any stormwater discharges or BMPs to control stormwater runoff that are likely to jeopardize the continued existence of any species that are listed as endangered or threatened under the Endangered Species Act or result in the adverse modification or destruction of designated critical habitat.

APPENDIX B

HISTORIC PROPERTIES GUIDANCE
Applicants must determine whether their facility's stormwater discharge has the potential to affect a property that is either listed or eligible for listing on the National Register of Historic Places.
For existing dischargers who do not need to construct BMPs for permit coverage, a simple visual inspection may be sufficient to determine whether historic properties are affected. However, for facilities which are new stormwater dischargers, applicants should conduct further inquiry to determine whether historic properties may be affected by the stormwater discharge or BMPs to control the discharge. In such instances, applicants should first determine whether there are any historic properties or places listed on the National Register or if any are eligible for listing on the register (e.g., they are “eligible for listing”).
Due to the large number of entities seeking coverage under this permit and the limited number of personnel available to the State Historic Preservation Officer to respond to inquiries concerning the location of historic properties, it is suggested that applicants first access the “National Register of Historic Places” information listed on the Louisiana Office of Cultural Development’s web page at the address listed below. The address for the Louisiana State Historic Preservation Officer is also listed below. Applicants may also contact city, parish or other local historical societies for assistance, especially when determining if a place or property is eligible for listing on the register.
The following scenarios describe how applicants can meet the permit eligibility criteria for protection of historic properties under this permit:



  1. If historic properties are not identified in the path of a facility’s stormwater discharge or where construction activities are planned to install BMPs to control such discharges (e.g., diversion channels or retention ponds), or

if historic properties are identified but it is determined that they will not be affected by the discharge or construction of BMPs to control the discharge


then the applicant has met the permit eligibility criteria under Part I.A.3.f.
(2) If historic properties are identified in the path of a facility’s stormwater discharge or where construction activities are planned to install BMPs to control such discharges, and it is determined that there is the potential to adversely affect the property, the applicant can still meet the permit eligibility criteria if he/she obtains and complies with a written agreement with the State Historic Preservation Officer which outlines measures the applicant will follow to mitigate or prevent those adverse effects. The contents of such a written agreement must be included in the facility's stormwater pollution prevention plan.

In situations where an agreement cannot be reached between an applicant and the State Historic Preservation Officer, applicants should contact the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation listed below in this addendum for assistance.


The term “adverse effects” includes but is not limited to damage, deterioration, alteration or destruction of the historic property or place. LDEQ encourages applicants to contact the Louisiana State Historic Preservation Officer as soon as possible in the event of a potential adverse effect to a historic property.
Applicants are reminded that they must comply with all applicable State and local laws concerning the protection of historic properties and places.
I. Internet Information on the National Register of Historic Places
