Sewer System Management Plan (SSMP)
On May 2, 2006, the State Water Resources Control Board adopted an order requiring owners/operators of sanitary sewer systems greater than one mile in length to comply with certain regulations aimed at decreasing the likelihood of sanitary sewer overflows. These requirements are to be described by a "Sanitary Sewer Management Plan" specific to each agency.
In response to State Water Resources Control Board Order 2006-0003-DWQ, the City of Chula Vista drafted a Sanitary Sewer Management Program document. The document contains eleven chapters detailing subjects such as current wastewater related connection policies, design guidelines, and maintenance practices, as well as procedures used when responding to Sanitary Sewer Overflows within Chula Vista. The document is intended to be a "living document" in that it will be regularly updated and maintained to accurately describe all wastewater related policies and procedures and to remain in compliance with the most current federal, state, and/or local requirements.
A copy of the SSMP Report is also available to be reviewed in person at the City of Chula Vista Wastewater Engineering Division of the Public Works Department located at 276 Fourth Avenue.
