Urban Runoff Management Plan

The Program’s Urban Runoff Management Plan (URMP) consists of an area-wide plan and individual agency plans describing what the fifteen Co-permittee will do, collectively and individually, to reduce urban runoff pollution.  The URMP describes the goals and objectives of the Program and its various elements and how agencies implement the program in accordance with its NPDES permit. The URMP also contains model performance standards that may be modified as appropriate to fit local conditions and are implemented by each Co-permittee.
