The City of Martinez Clean Water Program serves to radically reduce or eliminate pollutants from entering the municipal storm drain system. This program is mandated under the 1987 Amendments to the Federal Water Pollution Control Act or the Clean Water Act. Through activities known as best management practices or BMP's, the City conducts municipal maintenance (e.g., street sweeping and catch basin cleaning), public education and outreach, new development and construction controls, illicit discharge control activities, monitoring and special studies, and watershed management activities.
