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.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
