Storm Water Operations

The quality of Coronado's surrounding waters plays a vital part in its community lifestyle and economy. Coronado's coastline (surrounding waters and beaches) is its most important asset; as such, Coronado is committed to protecting, maintaining, and enhancing its coastal resources and water quality.

The Storm Water Division is responsible for implementing and enforcing the National Pollution Distribution Elimination System (NPDES) Number CAS0109266 through CRWQCB Order Number R9-2013-0001. This Order requires all jurisdictions within San Diego County to develop jurisdictional specific policies and procedures designed to improve water quality. Several key components of Coronado's program include:

  • Development Construction Project Review/Approval Storm Water-related
  • Structural maintenance (storm drain line cleaning, storm pump stations, nuisance, and first rain flush diverter cleaning and inspection, and video inspection)
  • Water quality monitoring
  • Street Sweeping
  • Commercial business inspections (gas stations and restaurants, etc.)
  • Construction site inspections (perimeter control, material storage, discharges, general housekeeping)
  • Municipal site inspections
  • Special investigations (illicit connections, illegal discharges, irrigation runoff)
  • Education (municipal staff, residents, contractors, and businesses)
  • Public Participation (beach and bay clean-ups)
  • Monitoring of residential areas (irrigation runoff, prohibited discharges)

Remember, "Only Rain in the Storm Drain." To report spills, discharges (including irrigation runoff), construction violations or other potential storm water concerns, contact Public Services at 619-522-7380 during regular working hours or the Police Department at 619-522-7350 between 4:30 pm and 7 am, Monday through Friday and on weekends, or report an issue.
