Land Development, Green Infrastructure, and Construction

Three requirements in the San Francisco Bay Regional Water Quality Control Board’s Municipal Regional Stormwater Permit affect land development and urban infrastructure renewal. Here you can find how Contra Costa municipalities are implementing these requirements:

  1. Most land development projects, including projects on already developed land, must include Low Impact Development features and facilities to manage runoff over the life of the project. More information is on the C.3 Requirements pages.
  2. Municipalities are engaged in an ongoing, multi-decadal program to retrofit existing streets and drainage systems with Green Infrastructure. Details are on the Green Infrastructure pages.
  3. Construction projects are required to implement temporary controls to prevent erosion and sedimentation, and the discharge of pollutants, while construction is in progress. Details are on the Requirements for Construction page.
