Staff found an old Monterey Conference Center sign during the construction, 2017
The City of Monterey's Storm Water Ordinance (Municipal Code Chapter 31.5 Article 2) requires all construction site owners and contractors to implement storm water best management practices (BMPs). BMPs prevent pollutants generated during construction from leaving the construction site and entering the City's storm water system during wet or dry weather. BMPs help protect the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary!
For more information read the Construction Best Management Practices Plan Sheet.
City staff perform stormwater BMP inspections of construction sites. Below are the inspection forms for pre-construction and during-construction. These are provided below for property owner and contractor review.
Below are links to online construction BMP guidance documents:
Construction projects with soil disturbance of at least 500 square feet or 50 cubic yards are required to submit an ‘Erosion and Sediment Control Plan’ (ESCP). ESCPs are site-specific and show temporary construction BMPs to be implemented on-site during construction.
Regulated by the State Water Resources Control Board (SWRCB), larger projects are required to obtain coverage under their Construction General Permit (CGP) prior to the issuance of a construction activity permit locally. Larger construction projects (including linear projects) are those that disturb one or more acres of soil or whose project disturbs less than one acre and is part of a larger common plan of development.
These projects also require a Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP) to be submitted to the SWRCB and the City's Plans and Public Works Department for review prior to permit issuance. Lean more about the CGP and SWPPP requirements at the SWRCB Construction Stormwater Program website.
Watch this SWRCB CGP Video to learn more.
To report sanitary sewer spills and illegal dumping to the street, waterways, or the storm drain system, please call one of the following:
(831) 646-3921 (during business hours)
(831) 646-3914 (during after hours)
911 (county-wide, anytime)
Dumping any pollutants or trash into the gutter, catch basin or the storm drain system is ILLEGAL. Please report sanitary sewer spills and any dumping to the City. Local ordinances limit storm water flows to clean rain water and non-polluted incidental flows like groundwater. Please do your part to protect local waterways!
Public Reports of City Sanitary Sewer Overflows (SSOs) may be found in the SWRCB California Integrated Water Quality System Project (CIWQS) database, available here: www.waterboards.ca.gov/ciwqs/publicreports.shtml
