California CA Industrial Awareness Program

California Industrial Stormwater Awareness Program Overview

This course is designed to cover some of the key components necessary for an industrial facility to develop and maintain a robust stormwater program under the 2015 California Industrial General Permit (IGP).  This course also provides the following:

  •   An introduction to the 2015 California Industrial General Permit (IGP), the Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP), and the timeline for compliance.
  •   Industrial Best Management Practices (BMPs) from selection to implementation to maintenance of a BMP.
  •   Inspection requirements of the 2015 Industrial General Permit (IGP), observations needed and BMP deficiencies.
  •   Sampling requirements, planning, analysis, monitoring requirements, visual observations and water quality samples.
  •   How a stormwater program and a Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP) is an iterative process and reporting requirements using the online SMARTS system.
  •   Recordkeeping and reporting requirements for the monitoring program.
  •   Training required, risks of non-compliance and the keys to compliance.

DISCLAIMER: This program has not yet been approved by the California Department of Water Resources Control Board.

Curriculum: California General Industrial Stormwater Awareness

This course is designed to cover some of the key components necessary for an industrial facility to develop and maintain a robust stormwater program under the 2015 California Industrial General Permit (IGP).  

Learning Objectives

  • Define the regulatory requirements for ongoing compliance under the California Industrial General Permit (IGP);
  • Identify minimum and advanced BMPs, BMP goals, and maintenance needs for an Industrial Stormwater program;
  • Plan for qualified storm events, and identify sampling requirements, Total Suspended Solids (TSS), pH, and oil and grease;
  • Document BMP deficiencies and how the iterative process for BMP improvement works as a permit requirement;
  • Conduct sampling observations, field pH analyses and evaluate inspection and sampling results for compliance with Numeric Action Levels (NALs) to improve;
  • Record, track and log SWPPP updates as part of the recordkeeping requirements;

At the Completion of This Program You Will Receive



Minimizing the amount of disturbed soil on the construction site will decrease the amount of soil which erodes from the site, and it can decrease the amount of controls you have to construct to remove the sediment from the runoff.
