New Industrial Storm Water Permit Has Been Adopted


The New Reality for Managing Industrial Storm Water: Guidance on the 2014 Permit for Environmental Managers

It’s official: on April 1 (no fooling), the State Water Resources Control Board adopted a new Storm Water Permit for industrial facilities, marking the first change in requirements in 17 years. The new requirements are more extensive and more technical, and the compliance pitfalls are more numerous as well as more consequential, but with timely attention to detail, facilities should be able to transition smoothly to the new permit. 

Join us to get the technical and legal scoop, and get a jump on compliance.

  • New permit requirements, with particular attention to technical issues, compliance pitfalls and challenges

  • New prescriptive BMPs, advanced BMPs and hydrological considerations

  • Expanded monitoring requirements and potential issues

  • Strategies for managing storm water concerns at industrial facilities

  • Recommended adjustments to facility program administration

  • Regulatory and enforcement trends

  • Green infrastructure and low impact development
