Urban runoff from businesses can be a major source of water pollution. Common pollutants from businesses include:
Dumping substances into a storm drain, or allowing substances to flow across pavement that eventually leads to a storm drain, are violations and can result in a fine.
To comply with State and Federal Water Quality Regulations, the cities of Campbell, Saratoga and the Town of Los Gatos requires certain industrial and commercial businesses to apply minimum Best Management practices (BMPs). The Authority maintains an inventory of commercial and industrial business in the West Valley, and performs routine inspections to make sure that appropriate BMPs are applied.
Sustainable business practices save money, time, and protects water quality and the environment. By applying appropriate BMPs, your business can also improve employee health and safety, communicate a positive professional image, and create good relationships with your customers and neighbors.
