Abstract:The City of Los Angeles Water Compliance Master Plan for Urban Runoff (WQCMPUR) was completed and adopted by the City's Board of Public Works in April, 2009, as a strategy to comply with current and emerging water quality regulations. This plan envisions water quality compliance by developing a green infrastructure for urban runoff management, water conservation, groundwater recharge, and infiltration. Sustainable compliance with water quality regulations will require implementation of many green infrastructure projects throughout the city as well as institutional measures, and source control. In this first year of implementation, most of the activities are directed towards developing TMDL Implementation Plans, demonstration projects, standard plans, and ordinances, and establishing a framework for citywide coordination and collaboration with City departments and stakeholders.
