Understanding ERA Level 2 Exceedances (with California Water Board)
Dealing with exceedances of Numeric Action Levels (NALs) this past year is no fun. If you already in Level 1 and your sampling results have you over the NALs again, you need to be ready for Exceedance Response Action (ERA) Level 2 in California. The California Water Board joined Mapistry in this webinar to cover what those exceedances mean and the process for bringing the concentrations down in future storm events under Level 2. In addition, we discussed the timeline ERA Level 2 requirements and the role facilities and Qualified Industrial Stormwater Practitioner (QISP)s play. Special guests, Laurel Warddrip and Rebecca Greenwood of the California State Water Resources Control Board (SWRCB), joined us to answer questions directly from industrial facilities.
