VCRCD’s Storm Water Quality Program (SWQP)

VCRCD’s Storm Water Quality Program (SWQP) was created in 2011 to assist horse and intensive livestock owners in meeting water quality regulations approaching Ventura County. SWQP suggests ways to improve manure management and storm water runoff in the form of Best Management Practices (BMPs).

SWQP offers complimentary site visits, technical information, recommendation reports, and assistance in implementing BMPs to the county’s horse and livestock owners located in the Ventura River Watershed. This program also focuses on education and outreach in an attempt to increase awareness about local water quality issues and effective manure management solutions. SWQP has been funded by the Ventura County Watershed Protection District in the past, and is now funded by a grant administered by the Los Angeles Regional Water Quality Control Board.
