Projects that receive their first discretionary approval for design elements after March 6, 2014 — or, if no discretionary approval is required, receive their first ministerial permit after that date — are subject to the PCRs, if they create or replace 2,500 square feet or more of impervious area.

To report 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 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!
City of Monterey Code requires construction site operators to implement best management practices (BMPs) to prevent pollutants from leaving the site and entering the City's storm water system.

A Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP) must be submitted to Plans and Public Works Department for any construction project (linear included) that disturbs one or more acres of soil or whose project disturbs less than one acre and is part of a larger common plan of development.

Regulated by the State Water Resources Control Board (SWRCB), these projects are required to obtain coverage under the State's Construction General Permit (CGP) prior to construction. Lean more about the CGP and SWPPP requirements at the State's SWRCB Construction Storm Water Program website.

NEW POST-CONSTRUCTION REQUIREMENTS (PCRs) for DEVELOPMENT PROJECTS are now in effect throughout the Central Coast per Central Coast Regional Board regulations.
