Marin County Storm Water Pollution Prevention Program (MCSTOPPP)

Overview


The District is administered by the Marin County Flood Control and Water Conservation District and staffed by the Department of Public Works employees.

About the Agency


In 1993, Marin's eleven cities and towns, the County, and the Marin County Flood Control and Water Conservation District collaborated and created the Marin County Stormwater Pollution Prevention Program. MCSTOPPP's goals include preventing stormwater pollution, protecting and enhancing water quality in creeks and wetlands, preserving beneficial uses of local waterways, and complying with state and federal regulations. Each member agency implements local prevention programs and helps fund MCSTOPPP. The agency is staffed by Marin County Department of Public Works employees and Marin General Services Authority provides budgetary and programmatic oversight. MCSTOPPP works closely with the Citizen's Advisory Committee to receive public feedback and advice.
