Big Chico Creek and Little Chico Creek Watersheds Storm Water Resource Plan
The City of Chico developed a partially grant-funded Storm Water Resources Plan (SWRP) for the Big Chico Creek and Little Chico Creek Watersheds. The purpose of the SWRP is to protect storm water quality by reducing pollutants and trash and to improve the use of storm water as a resource by “bringing to the top” those multi-benefit projects that can best meet the identified priorities on a watershed basis.
Qualifying projects provide benefits to water quality, water supply, flood management, the environment, public education and jobs.
The SWRP satisfies the requirements of Senate Bill 985 and follows the State Water Board SWRP guidelines in order to establish the City’s eligibility to receive future State grant funds for storm water projects.
