Status of the program
In 2000, the California Legislature passed Assembly Bill 885 (Water Code § 13290) that required the State Water Resources Control Board (State Board) to adopt regulations or standards for the permitting and operation of onsite wastewater treatment systems (OWTS). These standards were adopted by the State Board in 2012, as the Water Quality Control Policy for Siting, Design, Operation, and Maintenance of Onsite Wastewater Treatment Systems, also referred to as the OWTS Policy. This Policy, effective in 2013, sets minimum standards for OWTS and OWTS program administration by local agencies.
The Draft LAMP was prepared in accordance with the requirements of the State Board's OWTS Policy and the Regional Board's Water Quality Control Plan for the Los Angeles Region (Basin Plan).The Draft LAMP was discussed and recommended for approval by the Wastewater Advisory Committee on September 22, 2016.
Regional Board reviewed the Draft LAMP and provided comments to the City on March 2, 2018. The City prepared a response to the Regional Board comments and submitted a revised LAMP on March 22, 2018.
The City Council will discuss the LAMP prior to approval and adoption of the Final LAMP.
