Reasonable and Prudent Practices for Stabilization ( RAPPS ) of Oil and Gas Construction Sites
( September 9, 2009 )    5.4 Mb PDF File

The Reasonable and Prudent Practices (RAPPS) for Stabilization of Oil and Gas Construction Sites described in this guidance document were compiled by several oil and gas trade associations and their members.

The RAPPS guidance lists various operating practices and control measures used by oil and gas operators to effectively control erosion and sedimentation in storm water run-off from clearing, grading, and excavation operations at oil and gas sites under various conditions of location, climate, and slope.

If you have determined that stormwater run-off from your clearing, grading, and excavation operations require coverage under a construction general permit (CGP), you should consult EPA's or your state's CGP to evaluate whether those permits require different or additional best management practices (BMPs) beyond the reasonable and prudent practices described in the RAPPS document.
