The Municipal Regional Stormwater Permit (MRP; SFBRWQCB, 2015) Provisions C.11.a and C.12.a require the Permittees to demonstrate cumulative Bay Area-wide and Program area-specific mercury and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) load reductions over the current permit term. MRP Provisions C.11.b and C.12.b require the Permittees to develop and implement an assessment methodology and data collection program to quantify mercury and PCBs loads reduced through implementation of pollution prevention, source control, and treatment control measures. The Permittees will use this assessment methodology to demonstrate progress towards achieving the load reductions required in this permit term. This report has been prepared to address the requirements of MRP Provisions C.11.b.iii.(1) and C.12.b.iii.(1).
Reissued November 19, 2015 with effective date January 1, 2016, to 77 Phase I municipal stormwater Permittees in five Bay Area counties which are among over 90 local agencies comprising the Bay Area Stormwater Management Agencies Association (BASMAA).
