CITY COUNCIL AGENDA ITEM
Meeting Date: December 14, 2004
Subject/Title: Stormwater Management & Discharge Control Ordinance
Prepared by: Engineering: J. Cowling
Submitted by: Engineering: B. Grewal
Adopt a new Stormwater Management and Discharge Control Ordinance amending
Chapter 14.20 of the Municipal Code to address Stormwater System Management
and Discharge Control as set forth in section C.3 of the NPDES Permit.
Adoption of Stormwater Ordinance No. 670 in June 2001.
The City of Brentwood is a Co-Permittee under a National Pollutant Discharge
Elimination System (NPDES) permit regulating discharges from storm drain
systems in Contra Costa County. The permit, first issued in 1994 by the
California Regional Water Quality Control Board for the Central Valley
Region (Water Board), specifies measures the City must undertake to prohibit
non-stormwater discharges to storm drains and to minimize the quantity of
pollutants in stormwater.
The City participates in the Contra Costa Clean Water Program (Clean Water
Program), which coordinates stormwater NPDES permit compliance efforts
countywide. In the early 1990s, the Clean Water Program brought together a
group of municipal attorneys to prepare a model stormwater ordinance. The
City’s current ordinance is based on this model.
In February 2003, the Water Board amended permit Provision C.3, which now
requires the City to place conditions on its approval of some private
development projects. Similar requirements apply to the City’s own public or
Capital Improvement Program (CIP) projects. Beginning February 15, 2005,
projects that create one acre or more of new impervious area must
incorporate facilities to treat runoff before it may be discharged to creeks
or storm drains. The threshold will decrease to 10,000 square feet of
impervious area in August 2006. To protect creeks from erosion, projects may
also be required to detain or infiltrate runoff so that peak flows and
durations match pre-project conditions. The City is required to inspect
stormwater facilities to ensure that they are properly operated and
In late 2003, the Clean Water Program again convened a group of municipal
attorneys and engineers, this time to update the old model ordinance. The
updated model has been reviewed by the City/County Attorneys Association.
The attached City of Brentwood ordinance, which replaces existing Ordinance
No. 670, is based on this model and has been reviewed by the City of
Brentwood’s Senior Staff and Attorney.
The updated ordinance references the Contra Costa Clean Water Program
Stormwater C.3 Guidebook. The Clean Water Program convened groups of
municipal managers, planners, engineers, and attorneys to oversee
preparation of the Guidebook. A draft was completed in June and a second
draft, completed in November, is attached. A final version will be available
in January 2005. All Contra Costa municipalities will use the Guidebook to
facilitate compliance with stormwater requirements for all applicable
private and public development projects. The City may state exceptions or
additional requirements if needed to adapt the Guidebook to local
The updated ordinance also requires persons who own, lease, or operate
premises with facilities that treat, detain, filter, or infiltrate runoff to
inspect those facilities annually and certify to the City that they are
properly maintained and are in good condition.
Staff will be returning to Council to amend the master fee schedule to cover
these anticipated costs as afforded under Municipal Code Section 14.20.10 of
Contra Costa Clean Water Program – Stormwater C.3. Guidebook

a valid operation and maintenance certificate of compliance certifying to
the inspection of and the proper operation and maintenance of the treatment
measures and other appropriate source control and site design measures. Each
responsible person subject to this requirement shall request an inspection
from the City every 12 months. Upon the filing of such request, and the
payment of a fee covering the cost of inspection, the City shall inspect the
property and shall either issue such certificate upon a determination by the
inspector that all treatment measures and other appropriate source control
and site design measures have been properly maintained and are in good
condition, or shall issue a conditional certificate noting deficiencies that
must be corrected within a time indicated on the certificate, or shall deny
the certificate. A certificate shall be valid for one year from the date of
issuance. The City Council may by resolution establish the fee for the
inspection and certificate.

reasonable a selection process as may be deemed necessary to carry out the
intent of this chapter, including, but not limited to, random sampling or
sampling in areas with evidence of stormwater contamination, evidence of the
discharge of non-stormwater to the stormwater system, or similar activities.
Inspections may also be conducted in conjunction with routine or scheduled
inspections conducted by other public agencies or special district,
including but not limited to the City of Brentwood, the Contra Costa County
Fire Protection District, County Environmental Health Department, the Contra
Costa Mosquito and Vector Control District, or the Regional Water Quality
(b) Authority to Sample and Establish Sampling Devices. With the consent of
the owner or occupant, or pursuant to a search or inspection warrant, any
officer may establish on any property such devices as are necessary to
conduct sampling or metering operations. During all authorized inspections,
the officer may take any sample deemed necessary to aid in the pursuit of
the inquiry or in the recordation of the activities on site.
(c) Notification of Spills. All persons in charge of the premises or
responsible for emergency response for the premises have a responsibility to
train premises' personnel and maintain notification procedures to ensure
that immediate notification is provided to the City of any suspected or
confirmed release of pollutants creating a risk of non-stormwater discharge
into the City stormwater system.
As soon as any person in charge of the premises or responsible for emergency
response for the premises has knowledge of any suspected or confirmed
release of non-stormwater discharge entering the City stormwater system,
such person shall take all necessary steps to ensure the detection and
containment and clean up of such release and shall notify the City of the
occurrence by telephoning the director. This notification requirement is in
addition to and not in lieu of other required notifications.
(d) Requirement to Test or Monitor. Any officer may require that any person
engaged in any activity or owning or operating any premises that may cause
or contribute to non-stormwater discharges, undertake such monitoring
activities or analysis and furnish such reports as the officer may specify.
The burden, including costs of these activities, analysis and reports shall
bear a reasonable relationship to the need for the monitoring, analysis and
reports and the benefits to be obtained. The recipient of such request shall
undertake and provide the monitoring, analysis and reports required.
