Structural BMP Verification Portal

NEW: Submit your Operation and Maintenance Verification ONLINE!


The County of San Diego Department of Public Works is responsible for ensuring the ongoing operation and maintenance of privately-owned Structural Best Management Practices (structural BMPs) in the unincorporated County.

Structural BMPs are facilities and structures that help to prevent pollutants (e.g., trash, oil and grease, heavy metals, fertilizers, pesticides, sediments, etc.) from leaving your property and entering our storm drains and impacting our waterways.

Each year, the County mails self-verification Operation and Maintenance Forms to property owners and occupants. Submitting information contained in these forms satisfies a responsible party’s obligation to demonstrate annual proof-of-maintenance. This can now be completed online using the STRUCTURAL BMP VERIFICATION PORTAL.


Visit the Watershed Protection Program’s “MAINTAINING MY STRUCTURAL BMP” website for more information.
