Midcoast Watershed

Background:  In the 1970s, a 5.5-mile band of Midcoast shoreline, including Fitzgerald Marine Reserve (FMR), was designated by the State as an Area of Special Biological Significance (ASBS), due to the diversity of habitat and species found on the broad reef. Since 1983, the California Ocean Plan has prohibited the discharge of pollutants to the ASBS.

In 2011 the County began the Fitzgerald ASBS Pollution Reduction Program.  The project is led by the Department of Public Works in collaboration with the San Mateo County Resource Conservation District (RCD) and San Francisco Estuary Institute.  The project's goal is to improve water quality and protect beneficial uses of the Fitzgerald ASBS and assist in County compliance with ASBS stormwater regulations.

Midcoast Stormwater Drainage Committee

Midcoast Stormwater Drainage Committee (MSDC) convened from 2007 to 2009. The Committee's work plan included: Education, Identification of Problem, Potential Solutions, and Funding. MSDC received presentations from Coastal Commission staff, County Planning and Public Works staff and received comments from the public to help frame the extent of drainage problems on the Midcoast, the regulations and policies in place that impact drainage, and various approaches to improving drainage facilities. Short-term prioritized stormwater improvements identified:

1. 2nd/Kanoff/East in Montara
2. Stanford Ave in Princeton
3. Airport St in Moss Beach
4. 8th St in Montara
5. Miramar Dr in Miramar
6. Date St in Montara
7. Capistrano Rd in Princeton
8. Cedar St in Montara

MSDC June 2009 Final Report recommendations approved by Board of Supervisors:

1. Drainage improvements on 2nd, Kanoff, & East Ave in Montara: Develop a conceptual design report including environmental review, and a capital improvement project, subject to available funding.

2. Conduct public meetings by June 2010 to gauge the Midcoast community’s interest in developing a Midcoast Stormwater Master Plan and implementing stormwater capital projects and enhanced maintenance levels of service subject to approval of local funding sources.

3.  Seek Legislative Committee support for legislation that provides funding for stormwater system improvements and provides an exemption from Prop 218 requirements for generating local revenue for stormwater system improvements.
