Sewer System Management Plan (SSMP)
Overview of the Sewer System Management Plan

The City of Fortuna’s Sewer System Management Plan (SSMP) has been prepared in compliance with requirements of the State Water Resource Control Board (SWRCB) pursuant to Order No. WQ 2013-0058-EXEC, Statewide General Waste Discharge Requirements for Sanitary Sewer Systems (WDR).  The WDR requires development and implementation of a written SSMP, and defines eleven (11) mandatory SSMP elements.  The WDR also defines associated monitoring, record keeping, reporting, and public notification requirements.

The City of Fortuna's previous SSMP has been prepared with the assistance of Freshwater Environmental Services (FES).  This current SSMP was updated in 2018 and will become a living document, and should be updated as needed to reflect changes to the SSMP elements.  The intent of this SSMP is to meet the requirements of the Statewide WDR.

This document presents eleven elements in the order presented within the WDR:

  1. Goals;
  2. Organization;
  3. Legal Authority;
  4. Operation and Maintenance Program;
  5. Design and Performance Provisions;
  6. Overflow Emergency Response Plan;
  7. Fats, Oils, and Grease (FOG) Control Plan;
  8. System Evaluation and Capacity Assurance Plan;
  9. Monitoring, Measurements, and Program Modifications;
  10. SSMP Program Audits; and
  11. Communication Plan.

This document represents the most up-to-date SSMP for the City of Fortuna.
