The Alameda Creek Watershed Council’s mission is to protect and enhance water-related beneficial uses and resources in the Alameda Creek Watershed in order to create a healthy and sustainable watershed for the community. The Council will promote collaboration and the sharing of information among all stakeholders.  

The Alameda Creek Watershed Council was created in late 2007. It is a voluntary, nonregulatory group of stakeholders who are interested in protecting and enhancing water-related beneficial uses and resources within the Alameda Creek watershed. The Council evolved from the Alameda Creek Watershed Management Plan Steering Committee that originated in 1998.

WE ARE A GROUP IN TRANSITION - The watershed's stakeholders re-branding as the new acwForum. Our new website,, will soon host the most current information about ACWC and the acwForum.

Current signatory members of the Alameda Creek Watershed Council are tentatively considered stakeholder members of the new acwForum. These groups can formalize their membership status in the Forum by signing a new Letter of Understanding - coming soon. Non-signatory stakeholders of ACWC and acwForum are welcome to participate in Forum meetings and in the pursuit of the Forum's mission.
