The Water Resources Protection Collaborative adopted the Guidelines and Standards for Land Use Near Streams for reviewing development proposals near streams. This document includes requirements and recommendations for land use activities in and around Santa Clara County streams, in order to protect stream resources.
Since Spring 2007, most municipalities have adopted the Guidelines and Standards through resolutions and made them a part of their standard permitting process.
