Protect stormwater quality by using best management practices (BMPs) on the job site. A BMP is defined as a program, technology, process, siting criteria, operational method or measure, or engineering system, which when implemented prevents, controls, removes, or reduces pollution.
The following are some BMPs that will protect stormwater quality during construction.
More Information on Protecting Storm Water
Please call Permit Sonoma at (707) -565-1900 and ask for the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) Section for additional information about protecting stormwater. There is much that can be done to help reduce the amount of pollutants entering Sonoma County’s waterways. By incorporating stormwater BMPs on your site you can have a project that preserves and protects stormwater water quality in our neighborhoods and in Sonoma County.
Hazardous Waste Drop Off
Hazardous waste can be dropped off at the County’s Household Toxic Facility located at the Central Disposal Site, 500 Meecham Road, Petaluma.
