As previously reported by my colleagues Ryan Waterman and Parissa Ebrahimzadeh, on April 1, 2014, the State Water Resources Control Board unanimously adopted a new Industrial Storm Water permit (2014 Permit). You can find the new Industrial Storm Water permit and supporting documents here, along with a change sheet also adopted by the State Board.

The July 1, 2015 compliance deadline is fast approaching.  Fall is here and 2015 is right around the corner.  For those of you counting down to July 1st, covered facilities now have seven months to review the terms of the new permit and ensure that your facility will be in compliance.  An overview of some of the highlights of the 2014 Permit can be found here.

For more information about ensuring your compliance with the new Industrial Storm Water permit, please contact Missy Foster (, 916.319.4673), Michael Mills (, 916.319.4642), Parissa Florez (, 916.319.4644), or the Stoel Rives attorney already tracking the 2014 Permit for you.  More information about Stoel Rives’s water quality practice may be found here.
