Storm Water Protection
The Storm Water Protection Program is part of a nationwide effort to protect Carlsbad's creeks, lagoons, ocean and other natural water bodies from pollution. The city is regulated by the Municipal Storm Water Permit, which was issued by the Regional Water Quality Control Board.
Jurisdictional Urban Runoff Management Program
The purpose of the city's Jurisdictional Urban Runoff Management Program, JURMP, is to implement programs to reduce pollution in urban runoff, including programs to regulate new public and private land development during each of the three major phases of urban development, i.e., the planning, construction, and existing development (or use) phases. Each component of the JURMP closely follows the order of the permit requirements.
The JURMP will be revised as needed to reflect changes in the city's urban runoff management programs such as revised or new best management practices or new educational or training programs. The annual updates will also reflect changes in the city's commercial, industrial, and municipal databases, including revisions to facility/activity prioritizations that will be refined as additional monitoring and inspection data becomes available.

Watershed Urban Runoff Management Program
The Carlsbad Watershed Urban Runoff Management Program, WURMP, has been prepared by the City of Carlsbad, as lead agency, in collaboration with the cities of Oceanside, Vista, San Marcos, Escondido, Encinitas, Solana Beach and the County of San Diego all local agencies that have jurisdiction within the Carlsbad Watershed Management Area.
- A watershed is defined as an area of land that drains all water to creeks, lagoons and eventually the ocean.
- The goal of the Carlsbad Watershed Urban Runoff Management Program is to reduce the discharges of pollutants from the municipal separate storm sewer system (MS4) to the maximum extent practicable and prevent urban runoff discharges from the MS4 from causing or contributing to a violation of water quality standards.
- The program meets the requirements of the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System Municipal Storm Water Permit for San Diego Copermittees (OrderNo.R9-2007-0001,NPDESNo.CAS0108758).
