Watershed Programs

Integrated Regional Watershed Management Program

The San Clemente Coastal Streams Watershed is part of the South Orange County Watershed Management Area (WMA). The County of Orange, cities, water and wastewater agencies of South Orange County formed the South Orange County IRWM Group in 2004 and subsequently developed and adopted the South Orange County IRWM Plan. The IRWM Group established the South Orange County IRWM region as a cooperative framework for planning and implementing water management strategies in the region to improve water quality, integrate flood management, restore natural resources, and increase water supply and reliability.

Watershed Workplans

The San Clemente Coastal Streams Watershed Workplan (Workplan) identifies the management activities being undertaken by the City of San Clemente, the County of Orange, and the Orange County Flood Control District (the San Clemente Coastal Streams Watershed Permittees) to address priority water quality constituents of concern in the creeks and streams of the San Clemente Coastal Streams watershed. The Workplan is updated annually.
