Who Regulates Stormwater Pollution?
The Municipal Regional National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System Stormwater Permit (also known as the MRP
), issued by the San Francisco Regional Water Quality Control Board, mandates stormwater pollution prevention activities. The MRP requires 70+ municipalities in the Bay Area, including the City of Fremont, to place conditions on development projects to incorporate site design measures, source controls
, treatment measures, and on larger projects, flow duration controls (FDCs). More information may be found in the resources provided below or by calling the Environmental Services Division
