Stormwater LogoStormwater Management Program

The Stormwater Management Program ensures that the City of Eureka adheres to all California State requirements that protect the quality of the watersheds. The program provides support for compliance with the Construction General Permit (CGP) and the Small Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4s Permit). Stormwater is a valuable resource that we want to protect, infiltrate, and reuse.

Stormwater Resource Plan

The City of Eureka has developed and submitted a Stormwater Resource Plan (SWRP) to the State Water Board for review. This plan provides a watershed-based approach to stormwater management, seeking to replicate natural hydrology and watershed processes. This improved management will be accomplished through the identification, benefit quantification, and prioritization of the following types of capture projects, and stormwater treatment facilities. All projects selected will result in water supply, water quality, flood control, community, and/or environmental benefits to the City; therefore reducing demand on water supply, reducing pollutants of concern in water bodies, and/or restoring ecosystems.
