What is SUSMP?
The Standard Urban Stormwater Mitigation Plan (SUSMP) was adopted by the City of Poway to meet a requirement of the Municipal Storm Water Permit from the California Regional Water Quality Control Board. Because anything that enters the storm drain system flows directly to creeks, lakes and the ocean, SUSMP is intended to reduce post-construction urban runoff and water pollution from types of projects considered most likely to cause runoff or pollution.
