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.
