The SWRP is a planning document that identifies public lands (i.e., streets, parks, and municipal properties) where stormwater capture projects could potentially be located to provide the most benefit. Stormwater capture projects collect, store, and treat stormwater runoff as well as dry weather flows such as excess irrigation runoff. Potential environmental and community benefits include:
· Providing water for other uses, such as irrigation,
· Recharging groundwater,
· Reducing local flooding, and
· Improving water quality in local creeks.
The Draft SWRP will be posted for public review on June 25, 2018 at www.montereySEA.org. A 30-day comment period will be provided.
