Clean Storm Water Program

Clean Storm Water is Important to All of Us

As storm water flows through yards, gutters and streets it picks up oil, sediments, litter, garden chemicals and other materials. Urban storm water runoff flows through storm drains to ponding basins, canals, creeks, and the San Joaquin River. All of these replenish groundwater – our drinking water supply. That’s why CLEAN STORM WATER is important to you!
