The Chico Unified School District (CUSD) has been included on the California State Water Resources Control Board's (SWRCB) Storm Water Permitting Requirements, Attachment 3, "Non-Traditional Small MS4s" designation list as an operator of a Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4). Inclusion on this list requires that CUSD prepare a Notice of Intent (NOI) and a Storm Water Management Plan (SWMP) and submit them to the local California Regional Water Quality Control Board (RWQCB). Based on notification from the Central Valley RWQCB and/or the SWRCB, in October 2008, CUSD prepared and submitted the required NOI and SWMP consistent with the current SWRCB Phase II MS4 regulations and guidelines. The SWMP outlined activities for the implementation period 2008 through 2012.

Under Phase II of this Small MS4 General Permit, operators of regulated small municipal separate storm sewer systems (MS4s) are required to (1) obtain coverage under the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) Small MS4 General Permit, and (2) develop a storm water management program which includes implementation of the six minimum control measures: Please access the web link to view the CUSD Storm Water Management Plan.
