In response to the shift in stormwater management approaches in California, which now focus on watershed-based solutions that provide multiple benefits, the Water Quality, Supply, and Infrastructure Improvement Act (Proposition 1) was approved to provide a source of funding to agencies for implementation of these multi-benefit stormwater management projects. Prior to Proposition 1, the Water Code was amended, by the Stormwater Resource Planning Act (Senate Bill 985), to require that projects seeking grant funding from Bond acts approved after January 1, 2014 be included in a Stormwater Resource Plan (SWRP) in in order to be eligible for funding. This Ventura Countywide Municipal Stormwater Resource Plan (MSWRP) was developed for the Ventura Countywide Stormwater Quality Management Program1 to fulfill the SWRP requirements outlined in the water code in order to receive eligibility for future funding of multi-benefit stormwater and dry weather projects. This MSWRP also identifies projects for the program that are expected to contribute towards meeting Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4) Permit and Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) requirements, in addition to augmenting local water supplies.
