What is a WQMP?

A Water Quality Management Plan (WQMP) is a post-construction plan for managing the quality and quantity of runoff that flows from a developed site after construction is completed and the site is occupied.

Your WQMP will describe the site design, source control and treatment control Best Management Practices (BMPs) that will be implemented and maintained throughout the life of your project to prevent and minimize water pollution that can be caused by runoff.

A Preliminary WQMP (PDF) is prepared and submitted for Engineering Division review during the design stage of a project. A Final Project WQMP (PDF) must be approved prior to issuance of building and grading permits.
