Description/Abstract: 

With the commencement of the first year of the Industrial General Permit, many dischargers are in the process of evaluating the effectiveness of their programs, evaluating sources of elevated concentrations found in storm water discharge samples, and developing/ implementing new and enhanced BMPs for the new Exceedance Response Action (ERA) process. RWQCBs across the state will be seeing ERA Reports for the first time in the next few months and will in many cases be assessing whether the proposed corrective actions are appropriate. Representatives from several RWQCBs across California will provide an update on how their programs are addressing the new IGP, common issue/ concerns they have with respect to industrial storm water, compliance and program expectations, as well as other insights that could be useful for Dischargers as they develop compliance strategies that could have significant capital costs. There will also be discussion on the recently adopted TMDL provisions, and how these Region and watershed specific requirements will be managed by affected Boards. The panel will provide an interactive forum for attendees to obtain additional information from regulatory agency staff and ask questions/ interpretations on the Permit provisions.
