2017 - Stormwater Image

Our Stormwater regulations protect people, property, and the environment from damage caused by stormwater runoff. Our Stormwater code also satisfies the City of American Canyon’s (City) obligation to comply with our Municipal Stormwater Discharge National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) Permit, issued by the California State Water Resources Control Board. 

To more effectively reduce stormwater pollution in the Napa River watershed and to provide a consistent approach to stormwater regulations, the City joined with the other Napa County municipalities to form the Napa Countywide Stormwater Pollution Prevention Program. Bringing together countywide talents, knowledge and skills, we all benefit in providing community outreach and education programs, creating regulatory guidelines for construction contractors, and in obtaining grant funding to support specific parts of our programs.
