By July 1, 2015, the State Water Resources Control Board (SWRCB) requires California Industrial Dischargers to comply with the General Permit Storm Water Discharges Associated with Industrial Activities (Industrial General Permit, IGP), Order 2014-0057-DWQ, NPDES No. CAS000001. With few exceptions, industries covered under this permit must register online in the Storm Water Multiple Application and Report Tracking System (SMARTS) at the SWRCB website. To continue coverage, or apply for new coverage under this permit, you must upload the following Permit Registration Documents (PRDs) to SMARTS by July 1, 2015:

  • Notice of Intent (NOI)
  • Site Map(s)
  • Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP)
  • Annual Fees (to be paid by the Dischargers)

We can assist you (the Industrial Discharger) by cost effectively and efficiently preparing the Permit Registration Documents and uploading them into SMARTS. We will work with your staff to obtain the required information for the PRDs and expeditiously compile the draft PRDs for your review and approval. After you have concurred, we will upload these documents into SMARTS and show you how to log on to SMARTS for approval. Once you have submitted your Annual Fees, the SWRCB will assign a Waste Discharge Identification (WDID) number to cover your industry under this IGP.

In addition, as Professional Engineers and Qualified Industrial Stormwater Practitioners (QSIP will be available by 2016), we can train your staff to comply with this permit. The training includes implementing the Best Management Practices (BMP) in the SWPPP, performing visual monitoring, performing sampling and analysis, preparing reports and uploading required documents into SMARTS. We can also assist you to evaluate your sites for Numeric Action Level Exceedance and prepare the Level 1 Exceedance Response Action (ERA) Report and Level 2 ERA Action Plan and Technical Report.

Please contact us about your needs. We can describe the information we need from you to prepare the Permit Registration Documents, including the SWPPP, and discuss our proposed fees for the tasks before we start work.
