Through the development and implementation of comprehensive stormwater pollution prevention activities,
the City of Encinitas Clean Water Program serves to protect and enhance the quality of local surface waters
including our creeks, lagoons, and our beaches along the Pacific Ocean.
Services to the community through the protection of human and environmental health are the result of program
activities including water quality monitoring, commercial and industrial facility inspections, clean water ordinance
enforcement, new and re-development requirements oversight, comprehensive reporting and assessment,
watershed management, training, and community outreach and education.
HOW CAN YOU HELP PROTECT OUR WATERWAYS?
Pollution in our waterways can come from car fluids, pesticides & fertilizers, home car washing, pet waste, trash
and the list goes on. These pollutants can cause problems downstream as urban runoff. We can all help protect
our environment by using simple BMP's (BEST MANAGEMENT PRACTICES) that prevent pollution from entering
our storm drains and eventually our waterways. Take a look at the simple BMP's below that you can use to help
stop pollution. What will you do to make a difference?
