Alameda County Clean Water Public Information and Outreach Program

The Alameda County Resource Conservation District (ACRCD) provides assistance to the Alameda County Unincorporated Area and Flood Control and Water Conservation District’s Clean Water Programs by coordinating their Public Information and Outreach Program. This program is mandated by the Regional Water Quality Control Board in an effort to raise awareness of the impacts of stormwater pollution in local communities, and to give local residents information on how they can help protect our watersheds and the Bay

The program includes:

  • Attending local community events such as the Castro Valley Fall Festival, Ashland Famfest, Alameda County Home and Garden Shows, Sunol Wildflower Festival, local Earth Day events, etc. with a Clean Water Program outreach booth to educate local residents on what they can do around the home and garden to prevent stormwater pollution.
  • Organizing volunteer opportunities for Coastal Cleanup Day and Earth Day for the community to get involved in keeping our creeks and the Bay litter-free.
  • Providing watershed education programs in schools.
  • Collaborating with other local watershed stakeholders
  • Participating in Clean Water Program advertising campaigns.
