State Water Resources Control Board Announces Two Trainings in May

April 1, 2016
In conjunction with PG Environmental, LLC, State Water Resources Control Board (SWRCB) staff will be conducting two training classes in May.
 
Classes will be offered in Northern and Southern California and there will be no charge to attend.
 
Notice of Intent/Non-Exposure Certification Training
May 10, Diamond Bar and May 24, Rancho Cordova
 
This training is for representatives of Phase I permittees and Phase II Small MS4 General Permit enrollees. It will cover the fundamentals of determining the type of facilities subject to Notice of Intent (NOI) application requirements or No Exposure Certification (NEC) permit coverage under SWRCB’s Industrial Storm Water General Permit (IGP). Many little known or commonly misunderstood definitions, circumstances, and interpretations regarding NOI/NEC coverage will be explained.
 
Most cities and counties are regulated under an area-wide municipal storm water permit adopted by their local Regional Water Quality Control Board (Regional Water Board) or are regulated under SWRCB’s Small MS4 General Permit. Municipal permits require the regulated municipalities to conduct surveys within their jurisdictions to identify facilities that are subject to the IGP but have not obtained regulatory coverage or NEC permit coverage. This training is primarily aimed at municipality staff that conducts such surveys.
 
Small MS4 General Permit Training
May 11-12, Diamond Bar and May 25-26, Rancho Cordova
 
This training is for representatives of Small MS4 General Permit enrollees. It will cover the six minimum measures required in the SWRCB’s Small MS4 General Permit. The class is aimed at staff of traditional and non-traditional Small MS4 General Permit enrollee, and Regional Water Board staff within the Municipal Storm Water Programs that regulate storm water discharges under the Small MS4 General Permit. In addition, it will address how to plan and implement each minimum measure in accordance with the timeframes provided in the Small MS4 General Permit, as well as a description of the deliverables, desired outcomes, and self-inspection/evaluation process. Permittees attending the class should gain an understanding of how to comply with the Small MS4 General Permit and the compliance expectations of the SWRCB staff.  
 
There will be two presentations on the second afternoon. One presentation will address the 2015 SWRCB’s Trash Amendments and how they will affect Small MS4 General Permit enrollee next year. The other will provide information on how to obtain state bond fund funds to pay for multi-purpose projects that help with compliance with the Small MS4 General Permit and Trash Amendments.
