The NPS Pollution Prevention Program represented a multi-year strategy to reduce the discharge of pollutants from runoff, sediment sources, and municipal storm drain systems of the Cities of Arcata, Eureka, and Fortuna, and the unincorporated communities of McKinleyville and Shelter Cove. The Program was a collaboration between RCAA, the Cities of Arcata, Eureka, Fortuna, and the County of Humboldt, and other North Coast Stormwater Coalition members. The program included, but was not limited to, the installation of stormwater controls, BMP trainings targeting business/industry sectors identified as the largest contributors to polluted runoff, NPS pollution public education and outreach, and other Phase II NPDES Stormwater implementation programs/projects.
