SWPP Stormwater Program
LAWA Stormwater Program

Effective July 1, 2015, the State of California’s Water Resources Control Board (Waterboard) required all permittees, including Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA) to comply with the conditions of its new Industrial General Permit (IGP) in order to meet the provisions contained in Division 7 of the California Water Code and those of the federal Clean Water Act.

The new 2015 IGP aims to improve the water quality of the receiving waters of the US by requiring a more proactive approach to pollution prevention. All permittees, such as LAWA, are required to develop a Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP) that includes monitoring activities, facilities and discharges within and from the airports to assess potential pollutant sources and take corrective actions.
