Stormwater Pollution Prevention (NPDES) Information

Many communities, including Moreno Valley, face the prospect of needing to address the impacts of stormwater runoff as part of the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES).

Most residents and developers are unaware of the stormwater pollution (polluted runoff) problem, and the threat it poses to local rivers, lakes and streams. In fact, many people don't realize that storm drains connect to local waterways. Whatever ends-up in the storm drains flows directly - without treatment - to our rivers, lakes and streams. It is also illegal to dump into our waterways (M.C. 9.10.080). To combat this problem and comply with NPDES, Riverside County has developed a Water Quality Management Plan (WQMP).

To combat this problem and comply with NPDES, Riverside County has developed a Water Quality Management Plan (WQMP).

To determine if your "Significant Redevelopment" or "New Development" project falls under the WQMP requirements, refer to Question #2 in the WQMP Questions and Answers Fact Sheet.
