Regional Program Funds

Fifty percent of Safe, Clean Water Program revenues are used to fund stormwater projects and programs at the watershed level. This portion of funding (referred to as the Regional Program) is distributed among nine watershed areas, to be programmed by the respective Watershed Area Steering Committees. The percentage of funds received by each Watershed Area is proportional to the tax revenues collected within its boundaries. See below for the latest estimates of Regional Program funds.

Municipal Program Funds

Forty percent of Safe, Clean Water Program revenues are allocated directly to municipalities to fund local stormwater projects and programs. This portion of funding (referred to as the Municipal Program or Local Return) is distributed to municipalities proportional to the tax revenues collected within their boundaries. See below for the latest estimates of Municipal Program funds.

Revenue Generation

Revenues from the Safe, Clean Water Program are generated from a special parcel tax on private properties in the LA County Flood Control District. Learn more about the tax and how it’s calculated on our Tax Information page.
