The City of Santa Clarita’s Environmental Services staff presented information on the new storm water permit requirements at the Public Works Development Advisory Committee meeting February 23. These new storm water regulations affect construction sites over one acre.
The new state permit contains many new requirements, such as water quality monitoring and risk assessment that the development community has not been required to do until now. City staff provided the information to help the development community understand these new regulations and what the state inspectors will expect from their applications and construction sites. The new permit application deadline is July 1, 2010.
