The control of pollutants from industrial and commercial facilities emphasizes educating businesses about stormwater pollution prevention and control methods. Educational outreach to businesses goes on during facility inspections, through meetings with trade and business organizations and as a result of SMCWPPP's public information and participation activities. During facility inspections, SMCWPPP inspectors identify any needed improvements in business stormwater pollution prevention and control practices and establish schedules for accomplishing these improvements. As needed, SMCWPPP inspectors enforce local ordinances and/or hazardous waste management and other statutes to control stormwater pollution.
