County Permit Area
The red shading depicts the NPDES Municipal General Permit areas for the unincorporated Santa Barbara County. The boundaries were developed by the County in conjunction with the Central Coast Water Board. They are based upon current land use and 2010 census data and therefore subject to change in the future. Areas not shaded may be in a city; to verify if a parcel is in a city, check the Assessor's Office lookup page. Generally, projects located in the NPDES Permit area are subject to the State Post-Construction Requirements, and projects located outside the NPDES Permit area are subject to other storm water requirements. However projects located outside the NPDES Permit area boundaries may still be required by the County to comply with the Post-Construction Requirements based on the scale of development, potential impacts, or proximity to the permit area.
