New Storm Water Program
Mayor and City Council
We are pleased to announce the implementation of a new program, effective immediately, which will significantly reduce polluted wet weather runoff from construction sites. By effectively managing existing staff and redirecting their efforts during wet weather conditions, we can achieve these initial improvements within existing resources.
The focus of this program is to broaden the training, support and expertise of the City's Resident Engineers and redirect their efforts during periods of wet weather to insure that Best Management Practices (BMPs) are being employed by contractors to the Maximum Extent Possible (MEP) at construction sites to avoid polluted runoff and that approved Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plans (SWPPPs) are being effectively implemented.
In addition to the ongoing regular training that has been implemented, the basic operational steps of this new procedure are as follows:
We will incorporate the staff of the San Diego Regional Water Quality Control Board in our ongoing training program and we anticipate continuing improvements in process and procedures as the Resident Engineers gain more experience in addressing storm water issues. The experience we gain by implementing this program now will also provide more insight into appropriate staffing levels for the future.
