Runoff from our rooftops, parking lots, streets, and parks all discharges into the City’s storm drains. These storm drains are connected to our local waterways. That means pollutants such as litter, fertilizers, sediment, animal waste, and oil and grease can be picked up by runoff and washed into our creeks, and eventually the San Francisco Bay. That’s not only harmful to those critters that depend on our waterways, it also has the potential to impact public health and diminish local recreational opportunities.
The State of California has issued a Municipal Regional Stormwater Permit to municipalities and flood control districts in the Bay Area to regulate stormwater discharges. The City implements best management practices (BMPs) to control and reduce pollutant discharges into our storm drains during municipal operations such as road repairs and sidewalk maintenance.
In addition, the City does the following:
Maintenance of stream sections and stormwater detention ponds is necessary to ensure proper water flow through streams, improve water quality, and reduce the risk of flooding. The City of Pleasanton conducted an environmental review to assess the potential impacts of implementing the periodic, routine maintenance activities on specific stream segments and stormwater detention ponds within the City of Pleasanton to improve water conveyance and quality. The resulting Negative Declaration is available below for the general public. Questions with regards to Pleasanton's Stream Maintenance Project can be sent via email to email@example.com.
