Watershed & Monitoring

The watershed and monitoring component of the stormwater permit conducts special studies to determine which prevention techniques work best and where to focus pollution prevention efforts.  A watershed is that area of land that would drain rainwater to a particular waterway based on topography.  The amount of imperviousness in a watershed is important because, once it approaches 40%, the receiving waterway starts to show significant degradation.  The City's Storm Drain Master Plan will soon be updated.
