Chapter 26: Stormwater

Stormwater flowing through industrial activity areas, such as those on the SLAC site, can carry pollutants into local water bodies if upstream sources are not properly managed. The State Water Resources Control Board (SWRCB) regulates stormwater runoff through a general permitting process that applies to all industrial activity sites, including SLAC. Key components of this process include the mandatory development of a stormwater pollution prevention plan (SWPPP). A SWPPP must include an inventory of potential pollution sources, best management practices (BMPs) to control pollution sources and prevent pollutants from entering the storm drain system, and a monitoring and reporting schedule to ensure the BMPs are effective.

In addition to the general permit, certain activities, such as construction, or certain locations because of their importance to habitats, require specific permits. This chapter describes all permits and permit requirements pertaining to stormwater pollution prevention and SLAC policies to meet them.
