Help Protect Our Area Waterways

2017-2018 Watershed Stewardship and Education Grant Now Available!  The Stormwater Quality Program is offering grants to community groups and school projects that protect, restore or enhance our creeks and rivers.   Each recipient can receive up to $2,500 in grant funds.  Learn more at our Stormwater Quality Program page.

We Can All Do Our Part!

You can do your part to help protect our creeks & streams from pollution...without leaving your home!   Keep drains clear of debris to reduce pollution in our waterways. 


The warmer weather also means time to spruce up the home.  Please be careful when painting because rinsing latex paint from one brush into the gutter can endanger stream habitat for a quarter mile downstream.
