Strategies and Best Practices for SSp1: Construction Activity Pollution Prevention
Construction Activity Pollution Prevention is known by many names (construction activity pollution prevention being the least common). SSp1, Erosion control, SWPPP - they all amount to the same thing. Erosion control measures are pretty much required on most projects anyway, so just make sure you have your silt fence up, keep it functioning, and you’ll be in good shape!

Requirements for SSp1 in LEED v4 and v4.1
Create and implement an erosion and sedimentation control plan for all construction activities associated with the project.
The plan must conform to the erosion and sedimentation requirements of the 2017 U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Construction General Permit (CGP) or local equivalent, whichever is more stringent. Projects must apply the CGP regardless of size. The plan must describe the measures implemented.
These are the same requirements for pretty much any version of LEED, but note that using v4.1 requires compliance with the 2017 version of the EPA CGP - if your state hasn’t updated to that version, you’ll be better off sticking to LEED v4 which relies on the 2012 standard - if that’s an option for your project.
