Stormwater Control Requirements
Stormwater runoff from urbanized areas is the largest source of pollution to the nation's waters. Municipalities in urbanized portion of the San Francisco Bay Area are responsible for controlling stormwater pollution by complying with municipal stormwater National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permits. The development or redevelopment of property represents an opportunity to incorporate controls that can reduce water quality impacts, not only during construction, but also over the life of the project.
