New Storm Water Industrial General Permit Brings Increased Regulation to 14,000 Business in San Diego County
On April Fool’s Day 2014, the State Water Resources Control Board adopted a new Storm Water Industrial General Permit. The new permit will impose coverage requirements on approximately 14,000 business in San Diego County. The scope of regulation will range from the preparation of a Non-Exposure Certification to a new and complex set of storm water requirements including additional testing, training, planning, reports and strict liability for non-compliance. Participants will receive an overview of the new IGP requirements as well as strategies for assuring compliance.

Please note that confirmed reservations will be invoiced regardless of attendance, unless 24 hour cancellation notice is given.
