After close of business today, the State Water Resources Control Board announced the extension, saying

As you likely have observed, the State Water Resources Control Boards’ (State Water Board) SMARTS Storm Water Program database is limiting new enrollments or annual submittals from existing enrollees as required by the Statewide Industrial General Storm Water Permit (IGP). State Water Board staff have identified a technical issue that is affecting bandwidth of the system and restricting access to the database. Due to these challenges, the July 1, 2015 deadline for enrollment under IGP Permit 2014-0057-DWQ, adopted by the State Water Board on April 1, 2014, and the deadline for submittals under the now expired IGP Permit 97-03-DWQ have both been extended to close of business on Friday, August 14, 2015. This database access issue does not impact saved work items in SMARTS. If you have any questions or need customer assistance, our staff will be available to assist you during our normal business hours – Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

There are changes and you need to be prepared. For an overview, read our recent blog about CA’s New Industrial Storm Water Discharge Permit. IGP requires electronic applications and reporting. If you missed the 2015 Workshops for the New Industrial General Permit, we’ll be happy to discuss changes and the process with you, as well as perform the permitting for you. There are also resources available online such as the Summary of Significant Changes for the New Industrial General Permit. We look forward to talking with you.
