Storm Water Management

The Board desires to ensure that, to the maximum extent practicable, the district reduce the discharge of pollutants into the water system in order to minimize the threat to water quality from storm water runoff. When the district has been designated by the State Water Resources Control Board or a regional water quality control board, the Superintendent or designee shall ensure that the district complies with applicable General Permit requirements.

The Superintendent or designee shall develop a storm water management plan and shall submit the plan and a resolution authorizing the implementation of the plan to the Board for approval. The district's plan shall describe best management practices, measurable goals, and timetables for implementation in the following areas:

1. Public education and outreach on storm water impacts

2. Public participation, such as participation in adoption and implementation of the plan

3. Illicit discharge detection and elimination, such as maps and programs to detect and eliminate illicit non-storm water discharges

4. Construction site storm water runoff control, such as reviewing construction plans, inspecting sites, and tracking construction site runoff, as well as erosion and sediment controls

5. Post-construction storm water management, such as developing design standards for preventing runoff and verifying proper maintenance and operation of control procedures

6. Pollution prevention and good housekeeping, such as evaluating waste disposal, material storage, and equipment-cleaning procedures and spill prevention, including at bus maintenance facilities

The Superintendent or designee shall regularly report to the Board on the status of the district's implementation efforts.
