On March 23, 2020, CASQA executive management discussed permit implementation expectations during the COVID-19 pandemic with executive management of the State Water Resources Control Board (State Water Board). The State Water Board and nine Regional Water Quality Control Boards (Regional Water Board), individually or collectively the “Water Board”, have issued guidance and clarity as it pertains to stormwater.

CASQA at Work for You! 

The Board of Directors approved a methodology to identify the most critical water quality issues for stormwater. For the coming year, those issues are: pathogen indicators, biological integrity / biostimulatory substances, current use pesticides, and trash. These water quality issues were incorporated into CASQA’s overall prioritization process. Look for projects in 2020 to address each of these issues. The final work product: 'Water Quality Priorities: Approach, Methodology, and Results' is available to CASQA members only and can be found in the Member Library. This effort was managed through the Policy and Permitting Subcommittee, but also included significant input and expertise across many of CASQA’s subcommittees. Thank you to all who volunteered time for this foundational and valuable project!
