In accordance with the Regional Water Quality Control Board (RWQCB) pursuant to National Pollution Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) requirements, below is the City of Goleta's Storm Water Management Plan (SWMP).

New and Redevelopment

Effective March 6, 2014, new and redevelopment in the City of Goleta must be designed to prevent water quality impacts from occurring, during both the construction phase, as well as throughout the life of the project, by implementing the Central Coast Regional Water Quality Control Board’s Post-Construction Stormwater Management Requirements For Development Projects in The Central Coast Region.

More information on these requirements may be found at:

To assist project applicants in meeting these requirements, the City of Goleta has adopted the Santa Barbara County Stormwater Technical Guide For Low Impact Development. All regulated projects shall follow the Santa Barbara County Stormwater Technical Guide, available below with supplemental documents.
