Guidance for Stormwater and Dry Weather Runoff Capture

Chapter 811, Statute of 2017 (Senate Bill 541, Allen) required the State Water Resources Control Board to “recommend best design and use practices for stormwater and dry weather runoff capture practices that can generally be applied to all new, reconstructed, or altered public schools, including school grounds.” 


The Division of State Architect, California Department of Education, Office of Water Programs at California State University, Sacramento, and Water Boards partnered to complete the Guidance for Stormwater and Dry Weather Runoff CAPTURE (California Practices to Use Runoff Effectively) at Schools.  The Guidance is also posted on the Strategy to Optimize Resource Management of Stormwater (STORMS) website under the “Other STORMS Products” tab.
