Notice of Non-Applicability (NONA)
Industrial facilities who claim “No Discharge” may apply for a Notice of Non-Applicability (NONA) if they meet the following eligibility requirements:
1. The facility is not hydrologically connected to the waters of the United States.
2. The facility is designed to contain the maximum historic precipitation event (or series of events) of the past 100 year, so that there will be no discharge of industrial stormwater. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Agency provides historic precipitation data that must be used to make this determination.
If your facility meets the requirements, then a No Discharge Technical Report that demonstrates eligibility must be prepared and signed by a California licensed professional engineer along with the NONA submittal, via the SMARTS database.
