No Exposure Certification (NEC)
Industrial facilities that are able to show that all industrial activities, materials, and wastes do not have exposure to storm water can apply for an NEC (No Exposure Certification). This certification requires the discharger to submit facility diagrams, perform an annual inspection, and certify that non-exposure conditions are maintained. A permit fee costing $200 will be required upon application. Also important to note, is that Facilities previously considered as “light industry” under the previous IGP, may now qualify for No Exposure Certification.
Level 1 or 2 ERA and QISP
Upon entering Level 1 status, the facility must perform an Exceedance Response Action (ERA) Evaluation and must file a Level 1 ERA Report with the Water Board, via the Storm Water Multiple Application & Report Tracking System (SMARTS) database. The facility evaluation is required to be conducted by October 1st of the storm water year following the reporting year during which the NAL exceedance occurred.
