Operation & Maintenance

Maintenance is essential for assuring that stormwater treatment and hydromodification management measures continue to function effectively and do not cause flooding, provide habitat for mosquitoes, or otherwise become a nuisance.  To ensure that property owners are maintaining treatment measures, Santa Clara Valley municipal agencies have inspection and reporting programs in-place.

Property owners are required to conduct inspections and maintain installed stormwater treatment measures. Inspection documentation templates are available in Appendix G of the SCVURPPP C.3. Stormwater Handbook.
