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 Pomona 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 2013 SSMP serves a five-year update to the City’s 2008 SSMP. Since this has been approved by the City Council on October 21st, 2013, it can now be re-certified with the State Water Resources Control Board (SWRCB) so that the City can remain compliant with SWRCB Order Number 2006-0003-DWQ.

Sanitary Sewer Overflow Emergency Response Plan
The Sanitary Sewer Overflow Emergency Response Plan (SSOERP) establishes the formal procedures for City staff to respond to, contain, correct, and clean up SSOs. The document is intended to minimize the effects of SSOs on the environment while protecting the public’s health and safety.
