New! California Board of Professional Engineers, Land Surveyors and Geologists (CBPELSG) Licensed QSD Training Program
CBPELSG licensees will be able to register as QSDs via the State Water Board’s Storm Water Monitoring and Report Tracking System (SMARTS) online database. The registration process will include submittal of the CBPELSG license number, review of posted QSD Training Materials, and certifying that all information submitted is true, correct and current. Each licensee will also be required to check a box indicating that the licensee has reviewed QSD training materials provided. No registration fee will be required. Licensee registration information will be available to the public via SMARTS. Should a SWPPP be determined to be out of compliance, the State Water Board may file a complaint with the CBPELSG against the licensee. For additional information, please see the CBPELS License Fact Sheet.
