Storm Water Grant Program (SWGP) - Storm Water Resource Plans (SWRP)

Background

Senate Bill 985 (SB 985), the Storm Water Management Planning Act of 2014, implemented through the Water Code section 10560 et seq. (as amended by Senate Bill 985, Stats. 2014, ch. 555, § 5) requires a Storm Water Resource Plan (SWRP) as a condition of receiving grant funds for storm water and dry weather runoff capture projects from any bond approved by voters after January 2014.  The intent of SB 985 is to encourage the use of storm water and dry weather runoff as a resource to maximize water supply, water quality, flood management, environmental, and other community benefits within the watershed.

The State Water Resource Control Board’s (State Water Board’s) Division of Water Quality (DWQ) developed the Storm Water Resource Plan Guidelines (SWRP Guidelines) to establish guidance for public agencies for the development of SWRP consistent with the Water Code.  The SWRP Guidelines were adopted by the State Water Board in December 2015. A watershed-based SWRP must comply with the relevant Water Code provisions enacted by SB 985, in order for individual storm water and dry weather runoff capture projects in the SWRP to be eligible for bond funds.

It is the responsibility of the applicant to self-certify completeness of the SWRP or Functionally Equivalent (FE) - SWRP; however, the State Water Board will verify that the Water Code and SWRP Guidelines requirements were properly addressed through a concurrence review process.  A SWRP or FE-SWRP self-certification checklist must be signed by the authorized representative and reviewed by the State Water Board to confirm eligibility to receive bond funded grants for storm water and dry weather runoff capture projects.

We encourage applicants to have their plans reviewed in advance of the solicitation. Please submit your SWRP or FE-SWRP, a completed self-certification checklist, and a cover letter explaining the approach used to arrive at a functionally equivalent document (if applicable) to swgp@waterboards.ca.gov to obtain State Water Board concurrence review.
