PUBLIC MEETING

Monterey Peninsula Region Stormwater Resource Plan

The Monterey Regional Stormwater Management Program (MRSWMP) is holding a public meeting to present the Draft Stormwater Resource Plan (SWRP) for the Monterey Peninsula, Carmel Bay, and South Monterey Bay Integrated Regional Water Management Planning Region.

The SWRP is a planning document that identifies public lands (i.e., streets, parks, and municipal properties) where stormwater capture projects could potentially be located to provide the most benefit. Stormwater capture projects collect, store, and treat stormwater runoff as well as dry weather flows such as excess irrigation runoff. Potential environmental and community benefits include:

  • Providing water for other uses, such as irrigation,
  • Recharging groundwater,
  • Reducing local flooding, and
  • Improving water quality in local creeks.

The Draft SWRP will be posted for public review on June 25, 2018 at www.montereysea.org.

A 30-day comment period will be provided.

Public Meeting Agenda

  • Update on the SWRP development process and its relationship to other regional water management planning efforts.
  • Overview of the process used to identify, evaluate, and prioritize local and regional stormwater capture projects.
  • Presentation of conceptual designs for high priority projects.
