Marin Project Coordination (MPC)

Considering a creek project? Marin County Stormwater Pollution Prevention Program (MCSTOPPP) hosts monthly meetings where you can get free advice to help you through the environmental and regulatory permit process. MPC meetings are a valuable opportunity for project applicants to share their prospective creek projects for input and constructive feedback from staff of the permitting agencies. These meetings are intended to provide a forum for interaction and input, not public comment or regulatory action. Meetings are non-binding and informal. For information or to be placed on the agenda, call MCSTOPPP staff at (415) 473-3202.


MCSTOPPP member agencies include Marin's 11 cities and towns, the County of Marin and the Marin County Flood Control and Water Conservation District. MCSTOPPP's goals are to prevent stormwater pollution; protect and enhance water quality in creeks and wetlands; preserve beneficial uses of local waterways and comply with State and Federal regulations.

San Geronimo Valley Landowner Resources

The San Geronimo Valley Landowner Resources packet includes information about salmon and steelhead habitat requirements, native landscaping and planting, erosion control, stormwater and rainwater management, and links to additional resources. While landowners in the San Geronimo Valley may find the information in the packet to be particularly useful, it provides guidance that is also applicable elsewhere in Marin.
