Post-Construction Requirements (PCR) Inspection Program - Unincorporated South County

Pavement, rooftops, buildings, and other impervious surfaces disrupts the natural flow of water by not allowing water to infiltrate back into the ground. This causes stormwater runoff. Stormwater can collect debris, litter, sediment, oils and other pollutants in its path to the stormdrain, culvert, or creek. Stormwater is untreated and flows to our local waterways including creeks, rivers, lakes, and eventually, to the Monterey Bay. Post Construction Requirements, or PCRs, are stormwater treatment systems that are built to help offset the effects of development on the environment.
