What is the construction activity operator?

In the context of stormwater associated with a large or small construction activity, "operator" means any person associated with a construction project that (i) has direct operational control over construction plans and specifications, including the ability to make modifications to those plans and specifications or (ii) has day-to-day operational control of those activities at a project that are necessary to ensure compliance with a stormwater pollution prevention plan for the site or other state permit or VSMP authority permit conditions (i.e., they are authorized to direct workers at a site to carry out activities required by the stormwater pollution prevention plan or comply with other permit conditions).

The entities that are considered operators will commonly consist of the owner or developer of a project or the general contractor.
