Industrial Storm Water Sampling Video Field Guide Released by the Cal. State Water Resources Control Board

The CA State Water Resource Control Board released a new video field guide for collecting industrial storm water samples. This practical field guide offers guidance in the following areas:

  • Things to know & complete before sampling
  • Why collect samples?
  • Examples of a “representative sample”
  • Three common sampling scenarios (sheet flow, drain inlets, and manholes)
  • Examples of compliant and non-compliant sampling techniques

According to the CA State Water Resource Control Board:

The Industrial General Permit regulates industrial storm water discharges and authorized non-storm water discharges from industrial facilities in California. The Industrial General Permit is called a general permit because many industrial facilities are covered by the same permit, but comply with its requirements at their individual industrial facilities. The State Water Resources Control Board (State Water Board) and Regional Water Quality Control Boards (collectively, the Water Boards) implement and enforce the Industrial General Permit.

If you have any questions about sampling or the Industrial General Permit, contact our team – we have two QISPs (Qualified Industrial Storm Water Practitioner) on staff to answer your questions or schedule a site visit at your facility.Or, learn more about Filtrexx products featured in the sampling video that may assist in treating storm water pollutants at your site: EnviroSoxx and StormExx.
