The Central Coast Post-Construction Requirements stipulate that municipalities must require Regulated Projects to use rainfall statistics provided by the Central Coast Water Board or to calculate site-specific rainfall depths determined from local rainfall data using USEPA’s methodology (see Post-Construction Requirements Provision B.4.c).
Rainfall Statistics Provided by the Central Coast Water Board:
- WARNING: Read instructions before downloading maps.
- 85th Percentile Rainfall Depth Maps (Adobe Reader, pdf)
- 95th Percentile Rainfall Depth Maps (Adobe Reader, pdf)
- Shapefiles of 85th and 95th Percentile Rainfall Depth Maps (GIS Shape Files)
- Memo Explaining Process for Developing Rainfall Depth Maps
- Memo Documenting Confidence Interval Accuracy of Rainfall Depths
Directions for Using Local Rainfall Data to Develop Site-Specific Rainfall Depths:
- Watershed Management Zones
- Physical Landscape Zones
- Receiving Water Type
- Groundwater Basins
- Urban Nodes
- Hydrologic Soil Groups
