NOTICE - As you likely have observed, the State Water Resources Control Boards' (State Water Board) SMARTS Storm Water Program database is limiting new enrollments or annual submittals from existing enrollees as required by the Statewide Industrial General Storm Water Permit (IGP). State Water Board staff have identified a technical issue that is affecting bandwidth of the system and restricting access to the database. Due to these challenges, the July 1, 2015 deadline for enrollment under IGP Permit 2014-0057-DWQ, adopted by the State Water Board on April 1, 2014, and the deadline for submittals under the now expired IGP Permit 97-03-DWQ have both been extended to close of business on Friday, August 14, 2015. This database access issue does not impact saved work items in SMARTS. If you have any questions or need customer assistance, our staff will be available to assist you during our normal business hours - Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

The Storm Water Program uses an integrated approach to regulate storm water discharges from industrial facilities, construction sites, and municipal systems. The Section includes two units that issue and enforce Storm Water NPDES permits. These units are Stormwater Permitting and Stormwater Compliance and Enforcement.

The NPDES Permit pdf documents might be formatted differently than the hard copies. We are in the process of reformating the permit pdf files to match the format on the hard copies.
