In 2016 Sonoma Water was awarded a $484,627 storm water planning grant from the State Water Resources Control Board’s Storm Water Grant Program. Sonoma Water staff along with other agencies and watershed partners are now working together to collaboratively develop Stormwater Resource Plans (SWRP) for the Petaluma River Watershed and the Sonoma Creek Watershed. Senate Bill 985 (Pavley, 2014) requires that in order for entities to be eligible for any future state funds from voter approved bond measures for stormwater projects they must develop compliant Stormwater Resource Plans to guide project selection and implementation.
A Stormwater Resource Plan (SWRP) is a non-regulatory, watershed-based and stakeholder-driven plan that builds on local stormwater management objectives and identifies and prioritizes projects that capture, treat or reuse stormwater runoff. These projects must provide at least two benefits which may include environmental enhancement, flood protection, groundwater recharge, water quality improvement or recreational opportunities.
