Chino Basin Storm Water Resources Plan

On September 24, 2014 Governor Brown signed SB 985 (Pavley) into law, which created the requirement for a Chino Basin Storm Water Resource Plan (SWRP) to be in place for an entity to be eligible to receive grant funding for a storm water and/or dry-weather runoff project where that grant funding was being provided by a bond act approved by the voters after January 1, 2014.  The State Water Resources Control Board (SWRCB) indicates that an entity may have existing plans and agreements that are functionally equivalent to an SWRP, and in that case, the entity can provide documentation demonstrating the nexus of its plans and agreements to the requirements in the SWRP Guidelines.  IEUA developed a Chino Basin Storm Water Resources Plan functional equivalency document to demonstrate that its planning documents meet the purposes of SB 985.  Presented here are the SWRP equivalency document for the Chino Basin and its supporting documentation.
