The Southern California Stormwater Monitoring Coalition (SMC) is a regional partnership of 16 stormwater management agencies working to develop solutions to regional challenges in stormwater management. Since its founding in 2001, the SMC has been pooling its members’ resources and expertise to collaboratively conceptualize, develop and fund stormwater research and monitoring initiatives across coastal southern California. This collaborative approach to stormwater management has influenced the development of NPDES permits, 303(d) listings and TMDLs, watershed plans, and stormwater monitoring designs. Learn more
