Hidden Hills Website Stormwater Public Outreach Stormwater Management
The City of Hidden Hills believes part of maintaining a beautiful city is through the protection of our waterways. Hidden Hills is located in the Malibu Creek and Upper Los Angeles River Watersheds. A watershed sheds rainfall and runoff, including pollutants, to local storm drains, creeks, and the Pacific Ocean without being treated. It is important keep our watersheds clean so we can have beautiful, healthy, and safe rivers and beaches.
What is stormwater?
Stormwater is runoff from rainfall that drains through natural and urban areas. Stormwater flows into stormdrains, through creeks, and eventually to the ocean and can pick up urban pollutants along the way. The city has a National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit in which the city must take many measures to prevent stormwater pollution. The permit contains multiple programs that are implemented by the city: public outreach, illicit discharge and illicit connection elimination, development planning, development construction, and public agency activities. With the implementation of these programs, the city can achieve water quality standards as enforced by the Regional Water Quality Board – Los Angeles.
