Drainage Master Plan

The City of Carlsbad Drainage Master Plan is a planning guidance document that:
  • Outlines the city's existing storm drainage network
  • Assesses existing and future drainage facility needs
  • Identifies needed improvements to accommodate future development
  • Provides planning level cost estimates of needed facilities
  • Establishes the methodology for allocating costs to future development
  • Recommends a fee schedule for planned local drainage areas

The Drainage Master Plan and the fees for planned local drainage areas were last updated by City Council on August 5, 2008. The following provides links to the text of the Drainage Master Plan:
