Summary Document, Notes, and Presentations

On July 17, 2014, in conjunction with the Regional Water Quality Control Board, San Diego Region, (Regional Board), a stormwater alternative compliance workshop with 145 participants was held in Procopio’s San Diego offices. The workshop reviewed the alternative compliance options related to the new Municipal Stormwater Permit (MS4). Stepping Stone Permit Compliance organized the event which was hosted by Procopio, Cory, Hargreaves & Savitch, and facilitated by Nettleton Strategies. This web page provides the outcomes of the workshop. All items in blue are linked to appropriate information and work products related to the workshop.

Regional Board Perspective
Regional Board Executive Officer David Gibson recognized a high level of interest in stormwater and the alternative compliance option. The Regional Board intends to provide flexibility and opportunities for partnerships to achieve compliance for small to large projects. Alternative compliance provides a preferred path to addressing impaired water bodies rather than TMDLs, which are overused and hard to implement for non-point source pollutants.
