Stormwater Regulations

The City of Watsonville enacted new post construction requirements for managing storm runoff from new development and redevelopment projects. The new regulations closely follow the requirements adopted by the Central Coast Regional Water Quality Board on 2013-07-12.
City Ordinance and State and Federal regulations require construction site stormwater management also known as erosion control. The San Francisco Public Utilities Commission Construction Best Management Practices Handbook provides resources for developers, architects and engineers as well as contractors.

The handbook provides information on the following Construction Best Management Practices: Construction site planning and management, vehicle tracking and dust control, erosion and sediment control, non-stormwater and water/material management.
