BMP Reporting
Best Management Practices (BMPs) are structural water pollution controls installed on individual parcels or in the public right-of-way in order capture, treat, and infiltrate or use rainwater/stormwater for beneficial use.  There are many BMP types installed in Santa Monica.  These maps and reports represent the BMPs installed to date.
