The Alameda Countywide Clean Water Program (Program) is a consortium of agencies within Alameda County that discharge stormwater to the San Francisco Bay. This Stormwater Quality Management Plan (Plan) describes the Program’s approach to reducing stormwater pollution.

There are five major sections to the Plan. The Background provides a brief history of water quality regulations. The Program Description describes the structure, accomplishments, and recent developments of the Program. The Component Work Plans describe the objectives and tasks of each Program component. The Pollution Reduction Plans describe the actions the Program and the member agencies will take to address specific pollutants that are impairing water quality. Lastly, the Performance Standards list specific tasks that the member agencies are required to perform.

The Plan for FY 2001/02 through 2007/08 is the Program's third stormwater quality management plan and will serve as the basis of the Program's third stormwater discharge permit from the California Regional Water Quality Control Board, San Francisco Bay Region (Regional Board). The Plan was submitted to the Regional Board 180 days prior to the expiration of the Program’s second permit on February 19, 2002. The federal Clean Water Act (1972) requires stormwater dischargers to reduce pollutants to the maximum extent practicable. The Plan, in conjunction with the permit adopted by the Regional Board, is designed to enable the consortium to meet that requirement.
