Big Chico and Little Chico Creek Watersheds Storm Water Resource Plan

The City of Chico is pleased to announce the development of 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 “expediting” multi-benefit projects that can best meet the identified priorities for a watershed. Qualifying projects will provide benefits to water quality, water supply, flood management, the environment, public education, and jobs. Please visit the web page for more information. The next Stakeholder/Public Outreach meeting will be held on July 19th from 6 – 8:00 p.m. at the City of Chico Council Chambers (421 Main Street).
