The purpose of this guidance is to revise compliance auditing procedures for unauthorized discharges, overflows and bypasses from facilities covered by a VPDES or VPA permit. Additionally, compliance assessment of overflows from satellite sewage collection systems and unauthorized dry weather discharges from combined sewer systems are included in this guidance. Assessed points are based upon the significance criteria set forth in this guidance. This guidance supersedes Section I.H and Appendix 1 (specifically Section 1.a.v for bypasses and overflows, and Section 4.a for other unauthorized discharges) of the Compliance Auditing Manual (GM#02-2010 and its amendments) and will be incorporated into the Compliance Auditing Manual, Guidance Memorandum No. 02-2010.
