Stormwater Management

The purpose of the Stormwater Management Program is to prevent stormwater runoff from acting as the vehicle for the discharge of pollutants to surface water bodies.

In compliance with the State Water Resources Control Board's General Permit NO. CAS000004, Stormwater Discharges from Small Municipal Separate Storm Sewer Systems, the City of Pismo Beach developed a Stormwater Management Program. Under this program, the City will educate and involve the community in stormwater pollution prevention, regulate stormwater run-off from construction sites, investigate non-stormwater discharges and reduce non-stormwater run-off from municipal operations.

The City of Pismo Beach Stormwater Management Program (SWMP) was approved by the Central Coast Regional Water Quality Control Board on June 5, 2009.
