Monrovia Mayor Mary Lutz and U.S. Rep. Grace F. Napolitano, D-Calif., are hosting a forum Wednesday on the Los Angeles County Municipal Stormwater permit. The following is a news release the city of Monrovia posted on its website about the event.
Congresswoman Grace F. Napolitano and Monrovia Mayor Mary Ann Lutz
invite you to attend a briefing regarding the Los Angeles County
Municipal Stormwater permit. This permit was adopted pursuant to the
Clean Water Act by the Regional Water Quality Control Board for the Los
Angeles Region in November of 2012.
The new permit will regulate the municipal stormwater discharges of 33 total maximum daily loads (TMDLs) of pollutants across the county. The cost to comply with this permit is expected to be at least $20 billion over the next 20 years according to the Los Angeles County Flood Control District.
We hope you will be able to attend this briefing for an update on the permit and to share some of the challenges encountered with the implementation of the MS4 Permit. This will also be an opportunity for you to hear from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the California Regional Water Quality Control Board on integrated planning strategies, asset management planning, and how to tap unconventional funding sources.The briefing will be held at the Cooper Auditorium, City of Hope, 1500 E. Duarte Road, Monrovia, CA on Wednesday, August 21st from 2 p.m. to 5p.m. The Cooper Auditorium is in front of the City of Hope Campus, and attendees are requested to park in Parking Lot D.
