Abstract: California’s Industrial and Construction General Stormwater Permits: Concerns and Strategies for Port Operations

The adoption and implementation of the most recent Industrial General Permit and the Construction General Permit in California presents significant challenges to marine transportation and port-wide facilities operating in California’s Seaports and Harbors. Most port facilities in California have receiving waters listed as impaired on the Clean Water Act Section 303(d) List which in turn leads to higher scrutiny for facilities operating in those areas. Facilities, construction sites, and municipalities that discharge to receiving waters must comply with federal, state, and local water quality policies, permits, and regulations.  This presentation provides awareness of the common water quality regulations, explores the common issues associated with seaport operations, and provides suggested strategies for complying with the permits to avoid regulatory violations and potential third party lawsuits. A review of common and not so common best management practices will be provided.
