Local Agency Management Program

Public Hearing

On May 10, 2018, the Los Angeles Regional Water Quality Control Board heard testimony and public comment pertaining to the Local Agency Management Program (LAMP). Contact the City's Environmental Health Administrator with any questions. View the Final Draft LAMP.

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.
