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.

Development Permits - Solid Waste Requirements

All projects must provide a completed Waste Enclosure Requirements Checklist with each application. Please also refer to the Waste Handling Standards for Commercial and Multi-Family Properties for solid waste requirements. A waste enclosure typical detail in PDF or CAD form can be found here.  Scroll down to the “Stormwater Measures” section of the page where you will find detail SC-2 in the right-hand column of the page.

The City of Dublin requires all construction and demolition (C&D) projects recycle at least 65% of the waste for remodels or tenant improvements, and 75% of the waste for new construction generated on a job site, excluding asphalt and concrete debris, of which 100% must be recycled.  For more information and required forms, visit the construction and demolition webpage.
