    San Diego IRWM Stakeholders –
    Per the request below – For organizations that have a storm water project in the Storm Water Resource Plan (SWRP), please review your projects in the online database and add quantifications by this Friday, February 17, 2017.

    We’d also like to provide a few updates on the Storm Water Grant Program and follow up on some of the comments from the February 1 RAC Meeting. The State Board has pushed Round 2 of the Storm Water Grant Program to 2018 ( ... wgp/prop1/). As a result, we are not currently asking for new storm water projects to be submitted by a specific date. When Round 2 of the Storm Water Grant Program opens, a Call for Projects will be sent out and a scored project list developed. As a reminder, the online OPTI database is always open, and you are welcome to add or update projects at any time.

    The OPTI database can be accessed using a direct link ( or can be navigated to using the Project Database tab on the SDIRWM website ( If you have any issues with your OPTI account or using the database, please contact us at

    Thank you.
