    Free, customizable Guidance!  

    Free Webinar!  

    What more could a stormwater permittee want?!

    CASQA Members,

    CASQA will be demonstrating how to use its new Program Effectiveness Assessment and Implementation Plan (PEAIP) Frameworks guidance in a free webinar on Thursday, April 30, 2015; 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm.

    Click here for webinar access instructions

    The Small MS4 General Permit (Phase II Permit) requires each Permittee to develop a PEAIP by the end of the second year of the Permit (June 2015).  To assist the Phase II community with this effort, CASQA has developed a PEAIP Framework (one for traditional MS4s and one for non-traditional entities) that can then be tailored by each Permittee.  The Framework is meant to provide a common platform for the PEAIP in a customizable, user-friendly format for agencies to use as they develop their individual documents.

    We are a team of graduate students from U.C. Berkeley’s Goldman School of Public Policy working with the EPA to help Region 9 better assist local communities across California in managing and financing their stormwater programs.

    If you are receiving this email, we have not yet received your response to our survey seeking information on your stormwater program.

    Please take five minutes to help us identify how the EPA can best assist you, by filling out our survey here: The more responses we receive, the more informed our recommendations will be. 

    Thank you very much for your help,

    Ari and team

    To All Phase II entities: 


    The California Stormwater Quality Association (CASQA) is implementing a Proposition 84 Stormwater Grant Program project to develop a Web Portal to assist the stormwater community in obtaining and utilizing information relating to the assessment of stormwater program effectiveness. 

    The Web Portal will provide a central repository for obtaining guidance, sharing data and information, and obtaining planning and assessment support.


    To ensure that the Web Portal is a valuable resource, we would like to understand what would be most useful for its primary users. Your input will help to refine the Web Portal content and develop training to meet user expectations and needs.


    Please take a few moments to participate in the online survey that has been developed.


    You can access the survey here:

    Note: the first page will indicate that you are 14% of the way through the survey, that is a by product of the survey, once you click next it will advance to the next screen.


    Your responses will be kept confidential. 


    Contact Karen Ashby at or (530) 753-6400 x232 if you have any questions.


    Thank you in advance for your participation.
