Storm Water

To help ensure that discharges from Santa Paula’s storm drain system are not polluting our waterways.  The city is required under the Federal clean Water Act to comply with a National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit issued by California’s Regional Water Quality Control Board.  The Ventura Countywide Storm Water Quality Management Program, of which Santa Paula is a participant, was established to comply with the NPDES permit.
