Document Type: Proceeding Paper
Part of: Water Policy and Management: Solving the Problems
Abstract: A regionwide storm water pollution control program in the Santa Clara Valley, California, includes an active industrial source control component that is designed and implemented as a public involvement program where the targeted public is the broad community of industrial facility operators. The regionwide program has included hosting multiple workshops targeting the industrial community; developing guidance documents to encourage compliance with state and federal regulations that may apply to industrial facilities; and promulgating Best Management Practices (BMPs) that describe the regional agencies' preferred means for industrial facilities to control storm water pollutants, including heavy emphasis on pollution prevention.
