The City of Larkspur is dedicated to ensuring the future health, safety, and general welfare of its citizens by:
- Minimizing discharges other than storm runoff to storm drains or watercourses
- Controlling the discharge to storm drains or watercourses from spills, dumping or
- disposal of materials other than rain water; and
- Reducing pollutants in storm water discharges to the maximum extent practicable.
We are protecting and enhancing the water quality of the state's and the nation's watercourses, water bodies, and wetlands in a manner pursuant to and consistent with the Clean Water Act.
The City of Larkspur would like to remind you that discharge of non-storm water flows to the City storm drain system is prohibited. All discharges other than storm water must be in compliance with a National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System
(NPDES) permit issued for discharge.
In Larkspur, storm drains flow directly to local creeks, San Francisco Bay, and the Pacific Ocean, with no treatment. Stormwater pollution is a serious problem for wildlife dependent on our waterways and for people who live near polluted streams or wetlands. Please, visit the Marin County Stormwater Pollution Prevention Program
website for more information on caring for our creeks, pest management, and Marin watersheds.
Congratulations on your project! But remember, you can help.
