Sewer System Management Plan (SSMP)

On May 2, 2006, the California State Water Resources Control Board adopted Waste Discharge Order (WDR) No. 2006-0003-DWQ, Statewide General Waste Discharge Requirements for Sanitary Sewer Systems. The WDR requires that all public wastewater collection system agencies in California with more than one mile of sewer pipe be regulated and mandates that the agencies/cities prepare a Sewer System Management Plan (SSMP) following the guidelines set forth in the WDR.

In April 2009, the City of Huntington Beach City Council approved the first version of the SSMP. The City Council will consider the Updated SSMP at the March 15, 2022 Regular Meeting.

The SSMP prepared by the Public Works Department in 2009 outlines and documents the activities that we utilize to manage our wastewater collection system effectively. Effective management of a collection system includes:

The overall goal of the SSMP is to protect water quality, eliminate or substantially reduce preventable SSOs, and to protect public health and the environment.

A home solar panel system consists of several solar panels, an inverter, a battery, a charge regulator, wiring, and support materials. Sunlight is absorbed by the solar panels and is converted to electricity by the installed system. The battery stores electricity that can be used at a later time, like cloudy days or during the evening.  Learn more about solar.
