New Development & Construction

The new development section of the stormwater program addresses pollution during construction projects, including sediment and erosion control as well as incorporating permanent controls in project designs.  The City of Half Moon Bay Conditions of Approval contains language requiring stormwater pollution prevention practices.  Contractors are informed of the Best Management Practices (BMPs) required on all construction projects.  For more information on new development and construction controls, contact the building department at 650-712-5835 and review the Current Stormwater Quality Control Requirements (2016).
