Development Permits - Stormwater Requirements
Stormwater requirements, including construction best management practices, stormwater management plan content, and template documents for Stormwater Management Maintenance Agreements can be found on the Development Permits - Stormwater Requirements page.
Polychlorinated Biphenyls (PCB's) Requirements in Development: The Bay Area Municipal Regional Stormwater National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System Permit (MRP) requires most San Francisco Bay Area municipalities to develop a program to ensure that PCBs from building materials (e.g., caulk, paint, mastic) do not enter storm drains during building demolition. MRP requirements include:
- Developing methods to identify applicable structures and materials before demolition.
- Developing protocols to ensure that PCBs are not discharged to the storm drain during demolition of these structures.
- Establishing the necessary authority for requiring implementation of the protocol via municipal ordinance or other mechanism.
Affected structures: Commercial, public, institutional, and industrial structures constructed or remodeled between 1950 and 1980. Single-family homes and wood-frame structures are exempt.
Specific PCBs building demolition program information may be found here.
