Federal regulations require NPDES industrial stormwater Discharger to certify and submit via SMARTs an Annual Report on or before July 15th of each reporting year. Each facility should have already prepared the Annual Comprehensive Facility Compliance Evaluation (ACFCE). Per IGP Section XVI, the Discharger shall include in the Annual Report:
- A Compliance Checklist that indicates a discharger has complied with, and has addressed, all applicable requirements of the IGP; this includes Monthly Non-Stormwater Discharge (NSWD) and Best Management Practices (BMP) inspections, Sampling Event Observations, Ad Hoc Reports completed, HUC-10 Watershed pollutant source assessment for impaired pollutants and sampling frequency reductions;
- The Discharger must address any exceptions for non-compliance during the reporting year (e.g. not collecting four (4) Qualifying Storm Events (QSEs); and
- Identify sections/page numbers of all revisions made in the SWPPP, including the Site Plan, drainage areas and improved/added BMPs…

We hope that you find these tips helpful. If you have questions about sampling techniques, how to be prepared for storms, permitting, or anything else for compliance in California contact: Jonathan Meronek, [email protected], or your local office.
