Post-Construction Requirements

 

In July, 2013, the Central Coast Water Board adopted Order R3-2013-0032, with new, more stringent Post-Construction Requirements (PCRs). Projects that receive their first discretionary approval for design elements after March 6, 2014 — or, if no discretionary approval is required, receive their first ministerial permit after that date — are subject to the PCRs, if they create or replace 2,500 square feet or more of impervious area.

 
 

Stormwater Technical Guide

 

Applicants for development approvals in jurisdictions within the City should use the Stormwater Technical Guide when preparing Stormwater Control Plans. The Stormwater Technical Guide can be downloaded from the Monterey Regional Stormwater Program web page by clicking here. A pre-application meeting is recommended for all projects subject to the PCRs.
