SECTION 1. Chapter 7 of Title 5 of the Redondo Beach Municipal Code is hereby amended in its entirety to read as follows:
This chapter shall be known as the City of Redondo Beach Stormwater Management and Discharge Control Ordinance.
- The federal Clean Water Act (33 U.S.C. Section 1251, et seq.,) provides for the regulation and reduction of pollutants discharged into the waters of the United States by extending National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (“NPDES”) requirements to stormwater and urban runoff discharge into municipal storm drain systems;
- Stormwater and urban runoff flows from individual properties onto streets, then through storm drains passing through the City and finally into the waters of the United States;
- The City is a co-permittee under the “Waste Discharge Requirements for Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (“MS4”) discharges within the Coastal Watersheds of Los Angeles County, except those discharges originating from the City of Long Beach MS4, which also serves as a NPDES Permit under the federal Clean Water Act (NPDES No. CAS614001), as well as waste discharge requirements under California law (the Municipal NPDES Permit”) and, as a co-permittee under the Municipal NPDES Permit, the City is required to adopt ordinances and implement procedures with respect to the entry of non-stormwater discharges into the municipal stormwater system;
- Part III, Section A of the Municipal NPDES Permit requires the City to effectively prohibit non-stormwater discharges from within its boundaries, into that portion of the MS4 which it owns or operates and into watercourses, except where such discharges are: (1) in compliance with a separate individual or general NPDES permit, or (2) identified and in compliance with Part III.A (non-stormwater discharges) of the Municipal NPDES Permit, or (3) originate from federal, state or other facilities which the City is preempted from regulating, and further provides that compliance with the terms of the Municipal NPDES Permit through the development and implementation of the programs described in the Municipal NPDES Permit will constitute compliance with the discharge prohibition in the Municipal NPDES Permit;
- Part VI, Section A.2 of the Municipal NPDES Permit requires the City to establish and maintain the legal authority necessary to control discharges to and from those portions of the MS4 over which it has jurisdiction, so as to comply with the Municipal NPDES Permit and to specifically prohibit certain discharges identified in the Municipal NPDES Permit;
- The Municipal NPDES Permit contemplates the development of an Enhanced Watershed Management Program in which the City will participate, which will in turn require the development and the implementation of programs for, among other things, the elimination of illicit connections and illicit discharges, development planning, development construction, and public information and education requirements, and which may require the later adoption of additional legal authority to implement such programs as they are developed by the permittees and approved by the Regional Board;
- In order to control, in a cost-effective manner, the quantity and quality of stormwater and urban runoff to the maximum extent practicable, the adoption of the ordinance codified in this chapter is essential.
5-7.103 Purpose and intent.
- The purpose of this chapter is to ensure the future health, safety and general welfare of the citizens of the City and the water quality of the receiving waters of the County of Los Angeles and surrounding coastal areas by:
- Reducing pollutants in stormwater discharges to the maximum extent practicable;
- Regulating illicit connections and illicit discharges and reducing the level of contamination of stormwater and urban runoff in the municipal stormwater system; and
- Regulating non-stormwater discharges to the municipal stormwater system.
- The intent of this chapter is to protect and enhance the quality of watercourses, water bodies, and wetlands within the City in a manner consistent with the federal Clean Water Act, the California Porter-Cologne Water Quality Control Act and the Municipal NPDES Permit.
- This chapter is also intended to provide the City with the legal authority necessary to control discharges to and from those portions of the municipal stormwater system over which it has jurisdiction as required by the Municipal NPDES Permit, and fully and timely comply with the terms of the Municipal NPDES Permit while the Enhanced Watershed Management Program is being developed by the City as part of the Beach Cities Watershed Management Group, and in contemplation of the subsequent amendment of this chapter or adoption by the City of additional provisions of this chapter to implement the subsequently adopted Enhanced Watershed Management Program, or other programs developed under the Municipal NPDES Permit.
- This chapter also sets forth requirements for the construction and operation of certain commercial development, new development and redevelopment and other projects (as further defined herein) which are intended to ensure compliance with the stormwater mitigation measures prescribed in the current MS4 Permit. This chapter authorizes the Engineer to define and adopt applicable best management practices and other stormwater pollution control measures, as provided herein, to carry out all inspections including entering entities discharging to the MS4, conduct surveillance, conduct monitoring, cite infractions and to impose fines pursuant to this chapter. Except as otherwise provided herein, the Engineer shall administer, implement and enforce the provisions of this section.
- The City Council shall approve and enter into interagency agreements as deemed necessary by the City Council to control the contribution of pollutants of the shared MS4.
Except as specifically provided herein, any term used in this chapter shall be defined as that term is defined in the current Municipal NPDES Permit, or if it is not specifically defined in the Municipal NPDES Permit, then as such term is defined in the Federal Clean Water Act, as amended, or the regulations promulgated thereunder. If the definition of any term contained in this section conflicts with the definition of the same term in the current Municipal NPDES Permit, then the definition contained in the Municipal NPDES Permit shall govern. The following words and phrases shall have the following meanings when used in this chapter:
“Area susceptible to runoff” means any surface directly exposed to precipitation or in the path of runoff caused by precipitation which path leads off the parcel on which the surface is located.
“Automotive service facilities” means a facility that is categorized in any one of the following Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) and North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) codes. For inspection purposes, Permittees need not inspect facilities with SIC codes 5013, 5014, 5511, 5541, 7532-7534, and 7536-7539 provided that these facilities have no outside activities or materials that may be exposed to stormwater.

5-7.113 Standard urban stormwater mitigation plan (SUSMP) and low impact development (LID) requirements for new development and redevelopment projects.
Objective. Pursuant to Part VI.D.7.b of the Municipal NPDES Permit, the provisions of this section establish requirements for construction activities and facility operations of development and redevelopment projects to comply with the current Municipal NPDES Permit to lessen the water quality impacts of development by using smart growth practices and integrate LID practices and standards for stormwater pollution mitigation through means of infiltration, evapotranspiration, biofiltration, and rainfall harvest and use. Except as otherwise provided herein, the City shall administer, implement and enforce the provisions of this section.
Scope. This section contains requirements for stormwater pollution control measures in development and redevelopment projects and authorizes the City to further define and adopt stormwater pollution control measures, and to develop LID principles and requirements, including but not limited to the objectives and specifications for integration of LID strategies. As specified in this section, certain Planning Priority Projects shall meet the requirements of this section through the preparation and submittal of a standard urban stormwater mitigation plan (SUSMP), which shall include the applicable LID requirements set forth in this section as an element of the SUSMP.
LID Standards Manual. The Engineer shall prepare, maintain, and update, as deemed necessary and appropriate, a manual (“LID Standards Manual”), which shall include urban and stormwater runoff quantity and quality control development principles and technologies for achieving compliance with the provisions of this section. The LID Standards Manual shall also include technical feasibility and implementation parameters, as well as other rules, requirements, and procedures as the Engineer deems necessary, for implementing the provisions of this Chapter.
Applicability – Planning Priority Projects. The following development and redevelopment projects shall be designated as Planning Priority Projects, which are subject to City conditioning and approval for the design and implementation of post-construction controls to mitigate storm water pollution prior to completion of the projects, and shall meet the requirements of this section:
- New Development Projects.
All development projects equal to one (1) acre or greater of disturbed area that adds more than 10,000 square feet of impervious surface area.
Industrial parks 10,000 square feet or more of surface area.
Commercial malls 10,000 square feet or more of surface area.
Retail gasoline outlets with 5,000 square feet or more of surface area.
Restaurants (Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) of 5812) with 5,000 square feet or more of surface area.
Parking lots with 5,000 square feet or more of impervious surface area, or with 25 or more parking spaces.
Streets and roads construction of 10,000 square feet or more of impervious surface area. Street and road construction applies to standalone streets, roads, highways, and freeway projects, and also applies to streets within larger projects.
Automotive service facilities (Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) of 5013, 5014, 5511, 5541, 7532-7534 and 7536-7539) 5,000 square feet or more of surface area.
Projects located in or directly adjacent to, or discharging directly to an Significant Ecological Area (SEA), where the development will:
(i) Discharge stormwater runoff that is likely to impact a sensitive biological species or habitat; and
Create 2,500 square feet or more of impervious surface area.
Single-family hillside homes.
Land disturbing activity that results in the creation or addition or replacement of 5,000 square feet or more of impervious surface area on an already developed site on Planning Priority Project categories.
Where Redevelopment results in an alteration to more than fifty percent of impervious surfaces of a previously existing development, and the existing development was not subject to post-construction stormwater quality control requirements, the entire project must be mitigated.
Where Redevelopment results in an alteration of less than fifty percent of impervious surfaces of a previously existing development, and the existing development was not subject to post-construction stormwater quality control requirements, only the alteration must be mitigated, and not the entire development.
Redevelopment does not include routine maintenance activities that are conducted to maintain original line and grade, hydraulic capacity, original purpose of facility or emergency redevelopment activity required to protect public health and safety. Impervious surface replacement, such as the reconstruction of parking lots and roadways which does not disturb additional area and maintains the original grade and alignment, is considered a routine maintenance activity. Redevelopment does not include the repaving of existing roads to maintain original line and grade.
Existing single-family dwelling and accessory structures are exempt from the Redevelopment requirements unless such projects create, add, or replace 10,000 square feet of impervious surface area.
Stormwater Pollution Control Requirements. The site for every Planning Priority Project shall be designed to control pollutants, pollutant loads, and runoff volume to the maximum extent feasible by minimizing impervious surface area and controlling runoff from impervious surfaces through infiltration, evapotranspiration, bioretention and/or rainfall harvest and use. In addition, the following specific requirements apply:
New Single-Family Hillside Homes. A new single-family hillside home development project shall include mitigation measures to:
Conserve natural areas;
Protect slopes and channels;
Provide storm drain system stenciling and signage;
Divert roof runoff to vegetated areas before discharge unless the diversion would result in slope instability; and
Direct surface flow to vegetated areas before discharge, unless the diversion would result in slope instability.
Street and Road Construction of 10,000 square feet or more. Street and road construction of 10,000 square feet or more of impervious surface shall follow the City’s Green Street Manual developed by the Engineer and approved by City Council resolution. The City’s Green Street Manual shall be based on the USEPA guidance regarding Managing Wet Weather with Green Infrastructure: Green Streets (December 2008 EPA-833-F-08-009).
Remainder of Planning Priority Projects Require a SUSMP. Except for the projects listed in paragraphs (1) and (2) of subsection D of this section, all other Planning Priority Projects shall prepare and submit to the Engineer for review and approval a SUSMP which shall also contain LID requirements consistent with Parts VI.D.7.c and VI.D.7.d(iii) of the Municipal NPDES Permit. In addition, Planning Priority Projects subject to this paragraph (3) shall do the following:
- Incorporate the SUSMP into Project Plans. An applicant for a Planning Priority Project identified in paragraph (3) of subsection D of this section shall incorporate into the applicant’s project plans a Storm Water Mitigation Plan (SWMP), which includes those BMPs necessary to control storm water pollution from construction activities and facility operations, as set forth in the SUSMP applicable to the applicant’s project. Structural or Treatment Control BMPs (including, as applicable, post-construction treatment control BMPs) set forth in project plans shall meet the design standards set forth in the SUSMP and the current Municipal NPDES Permit.
- Verify Maintenance of BMPs. If a project applicant has included or is required to include structural or treatment control BMPs in project plans, the applicant shall provide verification of maintenance provisions. The verification shall include the applicant’s signed statement, as part of its project application, accepting responsibility for all structural and treatment control BMP maintenance until such time, if any, the property is transferred.
- Issuance of Discretionary Permits. No discretionary permit may be issued for any Planning Priority Project identified in this section until the Engineer confirms the project plans comply with the applicable requirements of this section.
- Issuance of Certificates of Occupancy. As a condition for issuing a certificate of occupancy for a Planning Priority Project identified in this section, the Engineer shall require facility operators and/or owners to build all the stormwater pollution control BMPs and structural or treatment control BMPs that are shown on the approved project plans and to submit a signed certification statement stating that the site and all structural or treatment control BMPs will be maintained in compliance with the SUSMP and other applicable regulatory requirements.
- Transfer of Properties Subject to Requirement for Maintenance of Structural and Treatment Control BMPs.
- The transfer or lease of a property subject to a requirement for maintenance of structural and treatment control BMPs shall include conditions requiring the transferee and its successors and assigns to either (a) assume responsibility for maintenance of any existing structural or treatment control BMP or (b) to replace an existing structural or treatment control BMP with new control measures or BMPs meeting the then current standards of the City and the SUSMP. Such requirement shall be included in any sale or lease agreement or deed for such property. The condition of transfer shall include a provision that the successor property owner or lessee conduct maintenance inspections of all structural or treatment control BMPs at least once a year and retain proof of inspection.
- For residential properties where the structural or treatment control BMPs are located within a common area which will be maintained by a homeowners association, language regarding the responsibility for maintenance shall be included in the projects conditions, covenants and restrictions (CC&Rs). Printed educational materials will be required to accompany the first deed transfer to highlight the existence of the requirement and to provide information on what stormwater management facilities are present, signs that maintenance is needed, and how the necessary maintenance can be performed. The transfer of this information shall also be required with any subsequent sale of the property.
- If structural or treatment control BMPs are located within an area proposed for dedication to a public agency, said BMPs shall be the responsibility of the developer until the dedication is accepted by the public agency.
- CEQA. Provisions of this section shall be complementary to, and shall not replace, any applicable requirements for stormwater mitigation required under the California Environmental Quality Act.
- Violations Deemed a Public Nuisance.
- The following violations shall be deemed a public nuisance:
- Any condition caused or permitted to exist in violation of any of the provisions of this chapter; or
- Any failure to comply with any applicable requirement of either the SUSMP or an approved stormwater mitigation plan with respect to a property; or
- Any false certification or verification, or any failure to comply with a certification or verification provided by a project applicant or the applicant’s successor in interest; or
- Any failure to properly operate and maintain any structural or treatment control BMP on a property in accordance with an approved stormwater mitigation plan or the SUSMP, is determined to be a threat to the public health, safety and welfare, is declared and deemed a public nuisance, and may be abated or restored by any Engineer, and a civil or criminal action to abate, enjoin or otherwise compel the cessation of such nuisance may be brought by the City Attorney.
- The cost of such abatement and restoration shall be borne by the owner of the property and the cost shall be billed to the owner of the property, as provided by law or ordinance for the recovery of nuisance abatement costs,
- If any violation of this chapter constitutes a seasonal and recurrent nuisance, the Engineer shall so declare. The failure of any person to take appropriate annual precautions to prevent stormwater pollution after written notice of a determination under this section shall constitute a public nuisance and a violation of this chapter.
- Concealment. Causing, permitting, aiding, abetting or concealing a violation of any provision of this chapter shall constitute a violation of such provision.
- Civil Actions. In addition to any other remedies provided in this chapter, any violation of this chapter may be enforced by civil action brought by the City. In any such action, the City may seek any or all of the following remedies:
- A temporary and/or permanent injunction;
- Assessment of the violator for the costs of any investigation, inspection or monitoring survey which led to the establishment of the violation, and for the reasonable costs of preparing and bringing legal action under this section;
- Costs incurred in removing, correcting or terminating the adverse effects resulting from violation;
- Compensatory damages for loss or destruction to water quality, wildlife, fish and aquatic life.
- Administrative Enforcement Powers. In addition to the other enforcement powers and remedies established by this chapter, the Engineer has the authority to utilize the following administrative remedies:
- Cease and Desist Orders. When a discharge has taken place or is likely to take place in violation of this chapter, the Engineer may issue an order to cease and desist such discharge, or practice or operation likely to cause such discharge and direct that those persons not complying shall: (a) comply with the requirement; (b) comply with a time schedule for compliance; and (c) take appropriate remedial or preventive action to prevent the violation from recurring.
- Notice to Clean. Whenever the Engineer finds any oil, earth, debris, grass, weeds, dead trees, tin cans, rubbish, refuse, waste or any other material of any kind, in or upon the sidewalk abutting or adjoining any parcel of land, or upon any parcel of land or grounds, which may result in pollutants entering the MS4 or a non-stormwater discharge to the MS4, he or she may give notice to the owner or occupant of the adjacent property to remove such oil earth, debris, grass, weeds, dead trees, tin cans, rubbish, refuse, waste or other material, in any manner that he or she may reasonably provide. The recipient of such notice shall undertake the activities as described in the notice.
- Penalties. Violation of this chapter shall be punishable as provided in Chapter 1-2.01 of this Code. Each day that a violation continues shall constitute a separate offense.
- Permit Revocation. To the extent the City makes a provision of this chapter or any identified BMP a condition of approval to the issuance of a permit or license, any person in violation of such condition is subject to the permit revocation procedures set forth in this code.
- Burden of Proof. In an enforcement action, the burden of proof shall be on the person who is the subject of such action to establish that the reduction or elimination of the discharge to the maximum extent practicable has been accomplished through compliance with the best management practices available, including applicable monitoring, notifications and reporting requirements.
- Remedies. Remedies under this chapter are in addition to and do not supersede or limit any and all other available remedies, civil or criminal. The remedies provided for in this chapter shall be cumulative and not exclusive.
5-7.115 No taking.
The provisions of this chapter shall not operate to deprive any property owner of substantially all of the market value of such owner’s property or otherwise constitute an unconstitutional taking without compensation.”
SECTION 2. Severability. If any section, subsection, sentence, clause, phrase or portion of this ordinance for any reason is held to be invalid or unconstitutional by any court of competent jurisdiction, such decision shall not affect the validity or the remaining portions of this ordinance. The City Council of the City of Redondo Beach hereby declares that it would have adopted this ordinance and each section, subsection, sentence, clause, phrase or portion thereof irrespective of the fact that any one or more sections, subsections, sentences, clauses, phrases or portions were to be declared invalid or unconstitutional.
SECTION 3. CEQA. The City Council hereby finds, in the exercise of its independent judgment and analysis, that this ordinance is exempt from the California Environmental Quality Act (“CEQA”) because the Low Impact Development requirements for new development and redevelopment projects of this Ordinance will not have a significant effect on the environment, and the adoption of this Ordinance and the timing thereof is mandated by the action of the Los Angeles Regional Water Quality Control Board (“LARWQCB”). In this case, the City is acting at the direction of the LARWQCB and federal law to protect, maintain, restore and enhance natural resources and the environment. To comply with the requirements of the LARWQCB, the City Council finds that the adoption of this Ordinance is categorically exempt from the requirements of the California Environmental Quality Act (“CEQA”) pursuant to CEQA Guidelines Sections 15307 and 15308. Staff is hereby directed to prepare and post a notice of exemption pursuant to Guidelines Section 15062.
SECTION 4. INCONSISTENT PROVISIONS. Any provisions of the Redondo Beach Municipal Code, or appendices thereto, or any other ordinances of the City inconsistent herewith, to the extent of such inconsistencies and no further, are hereby repealed.
SECTION 5. SEVERANCE. If any section, subsection, sentence, clause, or phrase of this ordinance is for any reason held to be invalid or unconstitutional by the decision of any court of competent jurisdiction, such decision shall not affect the validity of the remaining portions of the ordinance. The City Council hereby declares that it would have passed this ordinance and each section, subsection, sentence, clause and phrase thereof, irrespective of the fact that any one or more sections, subsections, sentences, clauses, or phrases be declared invalid or unconstitutional.
SECTION 6. PUBLICATION AND EFFECTIVE DATE. This ordinance shall be published by one insertion in the official newspaper of the City, and the same shall go into effect and be in full force and operation from and after thirty (30) days after its final passage and adoption.
