The State Water Resources Control Board (SWRCB) adopted Order Number 2006-0003-DWQ, the Sanitary Sewer Systems Waste Discharge Requirements (WDRs), which requires all federal and state agencies, municipalities, counties, districts and other public entities that own or operate a wastewater collection system greater than one mile in length to develop and implement a system specific Sewer System Management Plan (SSMP).  The SSMP documents how an agency manages its wastewater collection system.

The SSMP prepared by the City of Victorville is in compliance with the Waste Discharge Requirements (WDR) and documents the City’s system specific plans and programs to operate, maintain, and manage its wastewater collection system.

The City of Victorville’s current SSMP document is scheduled to be re-certified with the State Water Resources Control Board (SWRCB) in May 2019, so that the City can remain compliant with SWRCB Order Number 2006-0003-DWQ.

The 2019 SSMP (under revision and not yet available) will serve as a five-year update to the City’s 2016 SSMP and is expected to be prepared by May, 2019.

Overflow Emergency Response Plan

The Overflow Emergency Response Plan establishes the formal procedures for City staff to respond to, contain, correct, and clean up SSOs.  It is intended to minimize the effects of SSOs on the environment while protecting the public’s health and safety, and is included in Element 6 of the current SSMP.
