Sewer System Management Plans

On May 2, 2006, the State Water Resources Control Board (SWRCB) issued Statewide General Waste Discharge Requirements (WDRs) for Sanitary Sewer Systems, Water Quality Order No. 2006-0003 (Order). The Order requires any public agency that owns or operates a sanitary sewer system more than one mile in length comply with the requirements of the WDR in order to reduce the number of Sanitary Sewer Overflows (SSOs). One requirement of the WDR is that agencies must develop a Sewer System Management Plan (SSMP) which describes how each agency operates, maintains, and evaluates its collection system.

The SSMP shall include the following components:

  1. Goals
  2. Organization
  3. Legal Authority
  4. Operations and Maintenance Program
  5. Design and Performance Provisions
  6. Overflow Emergency Response Plan
  7. FOG Control Program
  8. System Evaluation and Capacity Assurance Plan
  9. Monitoring, Measurement, and Plan Modifications
  10. SSMP Program Audits
  11. Communication Program

The completed SSMPs are available below as well as at our 404 Aviation Blvd office in Santa Rosa.
