Water quality is an important issue in the City of Dana Point. All runoff from construction sites, undeveloped and developed properties flow to the ocean.

To help maintain the harbor and beach water quality, a comprehensive water quality program has been developed. Some of the areas where a little effort goes a long way are:

  • Construction site B.M.P.s
    Construction sites Best Management Practices are measures taken by the Owner/Builder or Contractor to protect the construction site from the discharge of pollutants to any storm drainage system. No solid waste, petroleum byproducts, soil particulate, construction waste materials, or wastewater generated on construction sites or by construction activities is allowed to be placed, conveyed or discharged into the street, gutter or storm drain system.
