Sewer System Management Plan (SSMP)

Read about UC San Diego's Sewer System Management Plan.

Purpose

UC San Diego developed and is implementing a Sewer System Management Plan (SSMP) to properly manage, operate, and maintain all parts of the sanitary sewer system under campus control. The SSMP will help reduce and prevent sanitary sewer overflows (SSOs) and mitigate SSOs if they occur.

Plan development began in summer 2007 and is now complete. The public is invited to review and comment on the Sewer System Management Plan (PDF).

Sanitary sewer overflows

Effective January 2007, UCSD has reported all SSOs to the State Water Resources Control Board electronically via the California Integrated Water Quality System (CIWQS). Electronic SSO data and information regarding regulatory actions are available on the CIWQS Public Reports Web page.
