On May 2, 2006, the State Water Resources Control Board adopted Statewide General Waste Discharge Requirements for Sanitary Sewer Systems (Order Number 2066-0003). This Order applies to all public collection system agencies in California that own or operate collection systems comprised of more than one mile of pipe or sewer lines, which convey untreated wastewater to a publicly owned treatment facility. Under this Order each agency is required to prepare a Sewer System Management Plan (SSMP). The SSMP describes the activities used to effectively manage the wastewater collection system.
The Hemet City Council approved the initial City of Hemet SSMP on March 8, 2011.
The SSMP must be updated at least every five (5) years following the original adoption date, or whenever significant program changes are made. All changes are recorded in a Change Log. The City Council must re-certify the updated plan (by resolution), even if there are no proposed changes. The Hemet City Council re-certified and adopted the 2016 Hemet SSMP at their meeting on April 12, 2016.
