What is the SWQ Maintenance Program?

The SWQ Maintenance program was made part of the County’s Stormwater Quality Program as one of the requirements of the State’s General Strom Water Permit (https://www.waterboards.ca.gov/water_issues/programs/stormwater/phase_ii_municipal.html). The intent of the maintenance program is to ensure that privately installed storm water management devices are properly maintained throughout their effective life cycle and that they continue to lessen the long-term impacts of storm water discharges resulting from new and development projects within the County.
