Ventura Countywide Stormwater Quality Management Program

  Business Program

Available Program Publications
The Ventura Countywide Stormwater Quality Management Program addresses the management and discharge of pollutants to the storm drain conveyance system (street gutters, storm drains, drainage ditches, etc.) and Receiving Waters (ocean, creeks, rivers, estuaries, etc.)

Businesses are encouraged to implement Best Management Practices (BMPs) to reduce pollutants to stormwater runoff. BMPs are defined as general good housekeeping practices, schedules of activities, pollution prevention techniques, educational practices, maintenance procedures, prohibitions of practices and other management practices. BMPs also include treatment practices, operating procedures, and practices to control site runoff, spillage or leaks, sludge or water disposal, or drainage from raw materials storage.

Detailed facts sheets have been made available below in an effort to provide clear guidance. The BMPs described on these fact sheets are generally inexpensive to implement and may save money and resources. The fact sheets cover the following topics:

Storm Drains and Discharge Points
Building and Grounds Maintenance
Building Repair, Remodeling and Construction
Maintenance and Cleaning of Floors and Outside Impervious Surfaces
Materials Loading, Unloading and Storage
Vehicle and Equipment Fueling
