Stormwater Resource Plan for the Santa Ana River Watershed Region

The Integrated Stormwater Resource Plan (SWRP) is a regional, watershed-based plan intended to improve the management of stormwater resources in Riverside County.

The Stormwater Resource Plan

Riverside County Flood Control & Water Conservation District (District) developed a Stormwater Resource Plan (SWRP) for the Riverside County portion of the Santa Ana River Watershed.

The SWRP development process includes involvement from various stakeholders. The State Water Resources Control Board provided their consensus letter to the District, approving our SWRP. As of March 21, 2023, SAWPA’s OWOW Steering Committee and the SAWPA Commission formally approved the SAR SWRP by reference as an appendix to the One Water One Watershed Plan Update 2018.


What is an SWRP?

The SWRP is a watershed-based plan that identifies and prioritizes projects to best manage the risks and opportunities provided by stormwater runoff.

How do I qualify to receive funding?

Project sponsors that wish to receive State grants for stormwater and dry weather runoff capture projects must have the projects included in the watershed’s SWRP, per Senate Bill (SB) 985, the Stormwater Resources Planning Act.

Who can apply?

Public agencies, 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations, public entities, federally recognized Indian tribes, State Indian tribes listed on the Native American Heritage Commission’s Tribal Consultation List, or mutual water companies can add projects to the SWRP and apply for State grant funding.


How can I participate?

The SWRP encourages collaboration between public agencies, non-governmental organizations, and the public by creating a common framework for identifying and prioritizing multi-beneficial stormwater and dry weather runoff projects. 

There will be virtual information sessions taking place for those interested in stormwater and/or a dry weather runoff capture projects. Click the links in the table below for materials related to each meeting.

The call for projects is now closed

The Santa Ana River passes through the urban core of Orange, Riverside and San Bernardino counties. Via the bike path, the adjoining national forests, state, county and municipal parks and the Pacific Ocean are becoming readily accessible to urban residents, bringing nature into the lives of urban youth.
