Hydromodification Criteria & LID
The City of Morro Bay is required by the Central Coast Regional Water Quality Control Board to implement Hydromodification Criteria and LID. The City participated in a Joint Effort with other municipalities and agencies on the Central Coast to develop Hydromodification Criteria for long term watershed protection.
The results of that Joint Effort included the preparation of the Stormwater Management Guidance Manual for Low Impact Development & Post-Construction Requirements. Two versions of the Manual are available. The condensed EZ Manual (PDF)
is for individual single family homes. The Main Manual (PDF)
is used for all other projects. For more information on the Joint Effort, visit the Central Coast Waterboard's website
