Clean Air Programs at the Port

The Port is actively managing several programs to improve air quality at and around our operations:

Seaport Air Emissions Inventory

As part of its longstanding commitment to reduce air pollution from the operations of its seaport tenants, the Port of Oakland released its Seaport Air Emissions Inventory (Inventory) in August 2007.

Hazardous Materials Management Guide

Habitat Restoration and Park Development

The Port of Oakland is committed to environmental restoration as part of its developments and operations. The Port has completed a number of wetland projects around San Francisco Bay. More Information

Clean Water

Since 1992, the Port has worked in partnership with its tenant industrial facilities and with the general public to raise greater awareness about water pollution problems and to ensure that action is taken to prevent pollution in run-off. More Information

Emergency Response

As part of the Cal/OSHA requirement we are expected to provide employees with adequate life safety features such as clearly marked exits, fire extinguishers and fire extinguishing systems, and evacuation procedures. More Information

Materials Management Program

The Port of Oakland complies with all local, state, and federal laws which regulate materials and waste, both hazardous and non-hazardous.  The Port of Oakland has developed protocols and documents to assist its partners in managing materials responsibly.

Sanitary Sewer Management Plan

The Port of Oakland has prepared the Sewer System Management Plan ("SSMP") in compliance with the State Water Resources Control Board (SWRCB) Statewide General Waste Discharge Requirements ("WDR") for Sanitary Sewer Systems, WQO No. 2006-0003. The goal of the SSMP is to provide a plan to effectively manage, operate, and maintain the sanitary sewer infrastructure facilities owned by the Port of Oakland to prevent sanitary sewer overflows ("SSOs"). Under the terms of the WDR, the SSMP must be updated every five years following the original adoption date and re-certified by the governing board when significant updates to the SSMP are made. The first SSMP was adopted by the Board of Port Commissioners ("Board") on May 18, 2010 and updated on July 9, 2015 in compliance with the WDR requirements and the Revised Monitoring and Reporting Program, WQ 2013-0058-Exec. The 2020 SSMP, approved by the Board on January 28, 2021, reflects changes in the Port’s organizational structure over the last five years and, more importantly, provides a focus on the acceleration of the inspection, condition assessment, rehabilitation program to meet operational and regulatory requirements.

The SSMP may also be reviewed during normal business hours at the Engineering Services Counter, 530 Water Street, 2th Floor, Oakland, CA 94607. Comments or questions regarding the SSMP should be directed to Liem Nguyen at [email protected] or (510) 627-1636.
