Private Storm water
Conveyance Systems (“SCS”) have become very common
within the community of San Luis Obispo. These systems
often include: detention ponds, infiltration facilities,
catch basins, storm water pass-through, storm
drains/pipes and even just traditional culverts to name
a few. If you are a property owner and you have a
private SCS that is connected to the City’s SCS (i.e.
streets, gutters, storm drains, drain inlets, creeks,
catch basins, creek tributaries and etcetera.) then
there are certain obligations that go along with that
system. The obligations are necessary to protect
property downstream, upstream and public health.
