Stormwater Homepage - To return to the Stormwater Management
Sediment Control Requirements
construction projects require the installation, maintenance,
routine inspection (i.e.
weekly, before predicted
events, after rain
events and during prolonged rain events)
and the repair or replacement as needed of various Best
Management Practices (BMPs
& Control Measures)
throughout the course of the construction project in order to
protect local water quality. Most BMPs (i.e.
concrete / tool washouts and street sweeping)
are required year long and others are specifically required
during the rainy season (i.e. October 15th through April 15th)
or prior to a predicted rain event, even if that rain event is
predicted during the summer months. Enforcement of stormwater
regulations occurs all year long. For additional information
concerning the State of California's Construction General Permit
(CGP) please log on to the State of California's Water Resources
Control Board website at:
or refer to
of San Luis Obispo's Stormwater Public Outreach webpage at:

information concerning Erosion and Sediment Control.
Central Coast Joint Effort for LID and Hydromodification Control
proposed plan will affect projects of all sizes and types. The
Joint Effort is a collaborative, region-wide approach
municipalities in the Central Coast are using to implement Low
Impact Development and Hydromodification Control. The Storm
Water Management Programs (SWMPs) for each municipality
participating in the Joint Effort contain specific Best
Management Practices (BMPs) pertaining to the Joint Effort.
These BMPs fall into two categories: development of
hydromodification control criteria, and implementation of
hydromodification controls and LID. To learn more and how this
Plan will may affect your project click
