Preventing Stormwater Pollution in Our Community

Raul M. Rojas, Director, Public Works

We all live in a watershed, and what we do around our homes and gardens, businesses, and schools directly impacts our creeks and waterways. That's why it is so important that we all come together as a community to do our part in caring for our creeks, wetlands, bays, and ocean.
