State and Regional Board audits of SSMPs over the past six years show that SSO documentation is the single largest area where dischargers fall short of regulatory requirements and expectations. A sampling of completed SSMP audits show:
o Conflicting information in the onsite SSO Incident File
o Inconsistent information between certified CIWQS reports and discharger hardcopy files
o Incomplete SSO documentation
o Inadequate detail of SSO volume determinations
o Unreasonable estimates of SSO start times
o Lack of documentation of how the start time was determined.
This workshop will present a comprehensive roadmap to developing ironclad, defensible documentation for your SSO’s. The instructor will work real-world examples and demonstrate complete SSO documentation as part of working toward a complete SSO Incident File. Observe actual practice and a comprehensive guide, including forms, that can be used immediately to help ensure your SSO documentation and files are complete, defensible and will withstand regulatory scrutiny.
