All commercial and industrial businesses working in the City of Chula Vista must implement pollution prevention measures. Everyday business operations have the ability to come in contact with storm water, such as material handling and storage or metal grinding. It is the responsibility of the business owner and employees to ensure that their activities are not negatively impacting the environment.
The City of Chula Vista inspects commercial and industrial facilities and provides storm water best management practices (BMP) education and enforcement, if necessary. All businesses operating within the City of Chula Vista must comply with Chula Vista Municipal Code 14.20, Storm Water Management and Discharge Control.
