Inspections and Invoice Information
Why Did I Receive An NPDES Invoice?
California State law requires that the City of Long Beach inspects qualifying commercial facilities at a frequency of every two years—qualifying industrial facilities at a frequency of every two years for facilities that have activities and raw materials exposed to stormwater and every five years for facilities that do not have exposure to stormwater. Inspections are conducted to confirm that stormwater and non-stormwater best management practices (BMPs) are being effectively implemented in compliance with Chapter 8.96 of the Long Beach Municipal Code.
For more information on requirements for commercial sources, please review the Commercial Facilities BMPs. For more information on requirements for industrial sources, please review the Industrial General Permit (IGP - http://bit.ly/cswrcb-igp).
