(1)Under existing law, the State Water Resources Control Board (state board) and the California regional water quality control boards prescribe waste discharge requirements for the discharge of stormwater in accordance with the national pollutant discharge elimination system (NPDES) permit program and the Porter-Cologne Water Quality Control Act. Existing law authorizes a regional water management group, as defined, to adopt an integrated regional water management plan that addresses specified matters. Existing law authorizes a city, county, or special district to develop, jointly or individually, stormwater resource plans that meet certain standards.

This bill would enact the Rainwater Capture Act of 2010, which would authorize a landowner to install, maintain, and operate, on the landowner’s property, a rainwater capture system meeting specified requirements. The bill would authorize a public agency to lead a statewide stakeholder process to consider and address issues arising out of expansion of rainwater and stormwater capture. The bill would require participants in the stakeholder process to be responsible for costs incurred as a result of their participation and would require the initiating public agency to be responsible for specified costs.

(2)Existing law, the Contractors’ State License Law, creates the Contractors’ State License Board within the Department of Consumer Affairs and provides for the licensing and regulation of contractors. Existing law authorizes a landscape contractor working within the classification of his or her license to enter into a prime contract for the construction of a swimming pool, spa, or hot tub, an outdoor cooking center, or an outdoor fireplace, if certain conditions are met. Under existing law, a violation of these provisions and related provisions of existing law is grounds for disciplinary action.

This bill would additionally authorize a landscape contractor working within the classification of his or her license to enter into a prime contract for the construction of a rainwater capture system, as defined, if the system is used for landscape irrigation. The bill would authorize a landscape contractor holding a specified classification to design and install all exterior components of a rainwater capture system that are not a part of, or attached to, a structure.
