Permit Stormwater Monitoring
MS4 is a system of conveyances that include catch basins, curbs,
gutters, ditches, man-made channels, pipes, tunnels, or storm drains
that discharges into waters of the United States. An MS4 moves water
away from an area into a local water body, such a river, stream, lake,
estuary, wetlands, lagoon, or marine waters.
Coastkeeper’s Watershed Monitoring Program monitors from a multitude
of MS4’s throughout Ventura County (click
here for VCK monitoring map), and by doing so helps
implement the May 2009 Ventura County MS4 Stormwater
Permit to improve the water quality of storm water discharged from
existing stormwater infrastructure.

plays a critical role in enabling the enforcement and implementation
of the Receiving Water Limitations Provisions of the Ventura MS4
