Ventura stormwater forecast: cloudy, with a chance of clearing

Just a quick update on a story I posted over the weekend about Ventura stormwater management. The regional water quality control board has for three years been working on low-impact development rules: a watershed-wide permit that would govern how new development and re-development must manage stormwater on their properties. Last week the board took an action: but nobody who was at the meeting has been able to report clearly to me what happened there.

The board's interim executive officer, Sam Unger, now says the specific language of the stormwater permit will be available today or, at latest, tomorrow.
