Baseline Report

Effectiveness Assessment Baseline Report: Existing Practices and User Needs

The Effectiveness Assessment Baseline Report provides a foundation for this web portal, and is a product of the State Water Resources Control Board's Proposition 84 stormwater grant; the report includes the following:

  • Summary of existing California Phase I and Phase II stormwater permit requirements
  • Summary of current assessment practices (effectiveness assessment approaches, metrics, and methods)
  • Survey of assessment needs and opportunities
  • Materials review and compilation (completed assessments, regulatory resources, and stormwater-related research and literature)
