The City of San Clemente’s Jurisdictional Runoff Management Plan (JRMP) (previously know as the Local Implementation Plan or LIP) encompasses City-wide programs and activities designed to prevent and reduce storm water pollution within City boundaries. Under the requirements of the 2013 Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4) Permit the City was required to update its JRMP. Click below to view the JRMP.
Water Quality Improvement Plan
The City of San Clemente collaborated with other South Orange County jurisdictions and stakeholders to develop a Water Quality Improvement Plan (WQIP) for the South Orange County San Juan Hydrologic Unit Watershed Management Area (WMA). The goal of the WQIP is to protect, preserve, enhance, and restore water quality of receiving water bodies. This goal will be accomplished through an adaptive planning and management process that identifies the highest priority water quality conditions within the watershed management area and implements strategies to achieve improvements in the quality of discharges from the jurisdiction’s storm drain systems.
The South Orange County WMA WQIP was submitted to the Regional Water Quality Control Board (RWQCB) on April 1 and is available for public comment through May 6, 2017.
