The Clean Water Program Alameda County is your local government and community working together to protect creeks, wetlands and San Francisco Bay.
The Program's member agencies are: Alameda County, the city of Alameda, Albany, Berkeley, Dublin, Emeryville, Fremont, Hayward, Livermore, Newark, Oakland, Piedmont, Pleasanton, San Leandro, Union City, the Alameda County Flood Control and Water Conservation District, and the Zone 7 Water Agency. The Program educates the public on how to keep businesses and homes from contributing to storm water pollution, and also coordinates its activities with other pollution prevention programs, such as wastewater treatment plants, hazardous waste disposal, and water recycling.
What We've Done
The Program has worked since 1991:
- To educate the public about stormwater pollution and how to prevent it
- To eliminate illegal dumping and monitor water quality
- To reduce the amount of runoff pollution by promoting solutions and Best Management Practices (BMPs), simple and effective techniques businesses can use to control the pollution they contribute.
The Program coordinates the development and implementation its activities regionally and statewide through:
BASMAA: the Bay Area Stormwater Management Agencies Association; and
CASQA: the California Stormwater Quality Association.
