A. All persons owning or operating premises or engaged in activities who are required by federal or state law to submit to EPA and/or RWQCB a notice of intent (NOI) to comply with an NPDES or RWQCB stormwater discharge permit shall provide a copy of such notice to the public works manager upon request. Facilities required to apply for a stormwater discharge permit are identified in 40 CFR 122.26(b)(14).
B. All persons engaged in activities which will or may reasonably be expected to result in pollutants entering the public storm drain system shall undertake best management practices (BMPs) to minimize such pollutants, shall provide protection from accidental discharge of pollutants to the public storm drain system and comply with cleanup and notification requirements of this chapter. Such measures shall include the requirements imposed by federal, state, county, or local authorities. BMPs are site specific and are described in the documents "Storm Water Best Management Practice Handbook: Construction"; "Storm Water Best Management Practice Handbook: New Development And Redevelopment"; "Storm Water Best Management Practice Handbook: Industrial And Commercial"; "Storm Water Best Management Practice Handbook: Municipal"; or other guidance documents available from EPA and/or RWQCB.
C. If best management practice is required by the public works manager or city engineer to prevent a pollutant from entering the public storm drain system, the person receiving the notice of such a requirement may petition the city council of the city of Reedley to reconsider the application of the BMPs to the premises or activity. The written petition must be received by the city clerk within ten (10) working days of the notice issued by the public works manager or city engineer. The petition shall set forth any reasons as to why application of BMPs to the premises or activity should not be required and any proposed alternatives to such requirement. The city council will act within thirty (30) calendar days of the filing of the petition. (Ord. 2008-07, 11-12-2008)
