C 3 c new and redevelopment performance standards

C.3.c. New and Redevelopment Performance Standards

  • Current Size Threshold for Treatment

    • All projects with > 10,000 ft2 of new/ replaced impervious surface

    • Treatment BMPS sized (C.3.d)


C 3 c basmaa option

C.3.c. BASMAA Option

  • Maintain current size thresholds

  • Collect and analyze impervious surface data over term of MRP

  • Evaluate future size thresholds based on data


C 3 c engo option 1

C.3.c. ENGO Option 1

  • Dischargers can lower threshold to 5000 ft2

    and/or

  • Adopt measures to increase infiltration and treatment of runoff. Examples of measures:

    • Ordinances requiring minimum pervious surfaces

    • Strong positive incentives to

      • disconnect residential roof leaders

      • install permeable parking areas and driveways

    • Banning impermeable surfacing of parking strips

    • Banning direct connection of roof and yard drains

    • Funds for combined controls for small projects


C 3 c water board option

C.3.c. Water Board Option

  • Evaluate impervious surface data to determine if threshold should be lowered (1000 to 5000 ft2)

    • Implement new threshold in 3rd year of MRP

  • Require impervious data collection first 2 years of MRP

    • Adjust threshold up or down

  • Require development of standard specifications for lot-scale treatment measures first 3 years of MRP.


C 3 c engo option 2

C.3.c. ENGO Option 2

Lower threshold at beginning of MRP to 500 ft2.


C 3 c single family homes sfh

C.3.c. Single Family Homes (SFH)

  • Currently exempted from installing sized treatment BMPs (C.3.d.)

  • Projects creating > 1 acre new/replaced impervious surface should treat runoff with source control, site designs and landscaping

  • Santa Clara only: Bullet 2 threshold is 10,000 ft2


C 3 c sfh basmaa option

C.3.c. (SFH) BASMAA Option

  • Maintain current requirements (source control, site design, and treatment in landscaping) for projects with > 1 acre of new/replaced impervious surface


C 3 c sfh engo option 1

C.3.c (SFH) ENGO Option 1

  • Keep current requirements (source control, site design, and treatment in landscaping) for projects at or above threshold defined in C.3.c.


C 3 c sfh water board option

C.3.c. (SFH) Water Board Option

  • Require projects at or above threshold defined in C.3.c. to implement one or more BMPS from a list of options (to be determined and specified in the MRP)


C 3 c sfh engo option 2

C.3.c. (SFH) ENGO Option 2

  • Require sized treatment BMPS (C.3.d.) for projects above the threshold defined in C.3.c.

  • No Discharger inspections of these treatment BMPs


C 3 c comments

C.3.c. Comments


C 3 e operation maintenance of treatment measures

C.3.e. Operation & Maintenance of Treatment Measures

  • Current language requires Dischargers to:

    • Compile list of properties and responsible operators

    • Inspect subset of prioritized treatment measures with follow-up and correction

    • Require signed statements accepting O&M responsibility and granting access permission


C 3 e

C.3.e.

  • Workgroup agreed treatment BMP maintenance and potential conflict with protection of endangered species should be addressed.


C 3 e basmaa option

C.3.e. BASMAA Option

  • No change from current language

  • Until BMP/endangered species issue is resolved, include “safe harbor” language provision:

    • Dischargers are expected to work in good faith with other agencies to obtain maintenance approvals, but if they are not granted, Dischargers will still be considered in compliance with C.3.e.


C 3 e water board option

C.3.e. Water Board Option

  • Specify the following:

    • Minimum contents of O&M Programs

    • Priorities for inspection frequency

      • Minimum percentage (20%) facilities inspected annually

      • Minimum percentage of facilities with vault systems inspected annually

    • Reporting requirements

    • Vector control agency coordination


C 3 e comments

C.3.e. Comments


C 3 f limitations on increase of peak stormwater runoff rates

C.3.f. Limitations on Increase of Peak Stormwater Runoff Rates

  • Programs develop Hydromodification Management (HM) Plans for Board approval

  • All HM Plans have been submitted


C 3 f basmaa option

C.3.f. BASMAA Option

  • Retain existing basic “rules”

    • Threshold is 1 acre or more of new/replaced impervious surface

    • No increase in runoff peaks, volumes or durations from existing site conditions

    • No requirements if discharging to hardened channels or tidally influenced areas

    • No requirements if no increase in impervious area

  • Each Program implement its HMP

  • Each Program commit to effectiveness evaluation and continuous improvement of its HMP

  • Revise language to reflect current status of HMPs


C 3 f engo option 1

C.3.f. ENGO Option 1

  • Retain existing basic “rules” with changes to reduce existing extreme flows:

    • Merge thresholds for treatment and HM

    • Exempt hardened channels and tidal areas if increases would not impact beneficial uses or increase flooding

    • For new development, no increase in runoff peaks, volumes, or durations

    • Projects redeveloping > 50% of threshold, phase in requirements to reduce runoff peaks, volumes and/or durations from existing conditions. Allow variation in local programs and exceptions based on impracticability

    • Require one HMP monitoring project per Program (except Vallejo), or cooperation on 3 region-wide projects


C 3 f water board option 1

C.3.f. Water Board Option 1

  • Retain existing basic “rules” as in BASMAA Option, Bullet 1

  • Sites < X acres may size HM controls by using sizing charts or continuous simulation modeling


C 3 f water board option 1 cont d

C.3.f. Water Board Option 1 (cont’d)

  • Sites > X acres use continuous simulation model meeting performance standards below:

    • 30+ years of local rainfall data; flow duration matching for entire rainfall period of record

    • HM unit size and low-flow discharge will not increase erosion potential of receiving water. Lacking other data, low-flow will be 0.1Q2.

    • Post-project flow duration curve shall not deviate above pre-project curve by more than 10% over more than 10% of length of the curve


C 3 f water board option 1 cont d1

C.3.f. Water Board Option 1 (cont’d)

  • Reference each Program’s HMP and its status. Establish consistencies where needed in MRP

  • Require one HM Monitoring project per Program (except Vallejo), or cooperation on 3 region-wide projects


C 3 f water board option 2

C.3.f. Water Board Option 2

  • Same as Option 1 but add schedule to reduce flows from redevelopment projects:

    • If project has high risk reaches between project and Bay, must reduce erosion potential by 50%


C 3 f engo option 2

C.3.f. ENGO Option 2

  • Projects discharging to headwaters, including all catchments with < 25% impermeable surface, regardless of grade

    • All new and redevelopment projects implement HM controls

    • Redevelopment projects of some workable size (5000 ft2) decrease impervious surface by 25% or implement HM controls to reduce post-project flows as in WB Option 2 for entire redeveloped area

    • Projects with up to 5000 ft2 impervious surface may use sizing charts for HM controls

    • Larger projects use continuous simulation model

    • Implement in 1 year


C 3 f engo option 2 cont d

C.3.f. ENGO Option 2 (cont’d)

  • Projects discharging to transition zone, including all catchments with 25% - 70% impermeable surface, regardless of grade

    • New development projects of 1 acre or more of impervious surface implement HM controls

    • Redevelopment projects of 1 acre or more impervious surface decrease impervious surface by 25%, or implement HM controls to reduce post-project flows as in WB Option 2 for the entire redeveloped area

    • Implement in 2 years


C 3 f engo option 2 cont d1

C.3.f. ENGO Option 2 (cont’d)

  • Projects discharging to flat or built-out zone, defined as including tidally influenced reaches and catchments with > 70% impervious surface

    • No HM requirements, unless evidence of anadromous fish or special-status species or flooding

    • If evidence of flooding or special-status species, Dischargers propose treatment in their HM plans

    • If HMPs have not been approved by Water Board, projects follow rules for projects discharging to transition zone


C 3 f engo option 2 cont d2

C.3.f. ENGO Option 2 (cont’d)

  • Require one HM monitoring project per Program (except Vallejo), or cooperation on 3 region-wide projects


C 3 f comments

C.3.f. Comments


C 3 g alternative compliance based on impracticability and requiring compensatory mitigation

C.3.g. Alternative Compliance Based on Impracticability and Requiring Compensatory Mitigation

  • Current permits allow Dischargers to establish programs where projects may request alternative compliance with requirement to install sized onsite treatment BMPs (C.3.d.)


C 3 g basmaa option

C.3.g. BASMAA Option

  • Maintain intent and approach of current permits and allow variation among local programs

  • No finding of impracticability for granting equivalent offsite treatment alternative

  • If an alternative compliance program is prescribed in the MRP, allow individual Dischargers to bring local compliance programs to Water Board for approval


C 3 g engo option 1

C.3.g. ENGO Option 1

  • Simplify requirements and allow for variation among local programs while retaining a preference for onsite or nearby treatment

  • No special treatment for brownfields, low- income housing, transit villages, etc.

  • See flowchart

    • Use EPA brownfield definition but project must receive subsidy/benefits for redevelopment

    • Low-income treatment applied proportionally to % that is actually low-income housing


C 3 g water board option

C.3.g. Water Board Option

  • C.3.g. will be alternative compliance option (model program) for facilities that cannot install treatment BMPs onsite

  • Dischargers will not have option to develop individual alternative compliance programs

  • All alternative compliance programs approved by EO superseded by MRP
