Stormwater Resource Plan
Public agencies are now required to develop a Stormwater Resource Plan (SWRP) (or functional equivalent) as a condition of receiving grant funds from a bond approved after January 2014 for storm water and dry weather runoff capture projects (Water Code section 10563). The State Water Board established guidelines on developing a SWRP:
The intent is to encourage the use of storm water and dry weather runoff as a resource to improve water quality, reduce localized flooding, and increase water supplies for beneficial uses and the environment.

The Final Stormwater Resource Plan was submitted to the State Water Resources Control Board on February 28, 2019 and is currently being reviewed by the State Water Resources Control Board. Find links to the submitted sections below.

Technical Advisory Committee (TAC)
A Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) has been established for the development of the region-wide SWRP and includes representatives from the State Water Board, Central Coast Regional Water Quality Control Board, and interested parties such as municipalities, water suppliers, local agencies, non-governmental organizations, public utilities, and regulatory agencies.
There are nine (9) TAC Areas established to facilitate stakeholder involvement and stormwater resource planning efforts.
TAC members are designated as the lead representatives for each TAC Area. Stakeholders are invited to contact the Coastal San Luis Resource Conservation District (CLSRCD) at [email protected] or (805) 772-4391 for more information.
