Oceanside CA– With a new permit instituted last year, it can be challenging to understand and follow the guidelines. San Diego Coastkeeper invites homeowners, businesses and property managers of San Diego for an early morning coffee chat with experts, who will demystify the City’s new stormwater regulations. Participants will earn the basics of the current and upcoming changes to stormwater regulations and discuss best management practices for a property or business.
