Environmental Compliance Division
The Environmental Compliance Division is responsible for several important regulatory-based programs in Simi Valley.
There are four main components to the Environmental Compliance Division: Industrial Pretreatment, Stormwater Management, Hazardous Materials and Water Conservation. The Division offices are located in the Public Service Center at 500 West Los Angeles Ave (map).
The Industrial Pretreatment Program enforces the City's Sewer Use Ordinance. By monitoring, inspecting and evaluating sewer usage, staff protects the environment and the City's investment in sewer conveyance and treatment infrastructure. The Industrial Pretreatment Program provides pollution prevention educational materials and communicates specific requirements to businesses and their employees to meet federal and state requirements and protect the Water Quality Control Plant and the environment from toxic, hazardous and other illicit discharges.
The Stormwater Management Program ensures compliance with the Municipal Separate Stormwater Sewer System (MS4) permit and the City's Stormwater Ordinance. The Stormwater Program is part of the countywide effort to maintain surface water quality that is safe for the environment and meets all regulatory requirements. The Stormwater Program provides citywide enforcement efforts and public educational materials.
The Hazardous Materials Program includes the Household Hazardous Waste Program for residential hazardous waste disposal, the hazardous materials disposal services for City operations, hazardous materials emergency response services, and Hazardous Materials Awareness and First Responder training to City employees.
The Water Conservation Program implements the City's and Waterworks District No. 8's Water Conservation Ordinances. Sustained water use efficiency can help reduce the impact of long-term water delivery shortages due to Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta restrictions. Together, we can continue our progress towards reducing water use 20% by 2020, a key goal of the Water Conservation Act of 2009.
