Clean Water Program

The City of Pleasanton’s Clean Water Program is a combined effort with local governments, residents and local businesses working together to protect area creeks, wetlands and ultimately San Francisco Bay.

The Clean Water Program is located at the Operations Service Center, 3333 Busch Road and can be contacted at (925) 931-5520 Monday through Friday during normal business hours from 7:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

What the program is doing -

  • Educating the public about stormwater pollution and how it can be prevented.
  • We are working to eliminate illegal dumping and to monitor water quality.
  • Helping to develop Best Management Practices (BMP’s) to reduce the amount of runoff pollution with simple and effective techniques. businesses and City operations can use to control the pollution they contribute.

 

     

Program Elements - 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. These elements are all critical in preserving our precious natural resources.

Stenciling Storm Drain Inlets - You are the solution to the problem! Find out more about preventing pollution. Log on to the Alameda County website for more local information.  http://www.cleanwaterprogram.com/.

Storm Monitoring – When winter flooding occurs, crews are the first line of defense.  Small streams, drain inlets and storm drainpipes are constantly monitored when a big storm hits.

House Hold Hazardous Waste Disposal – Proper disposal of chemicals used around your house is critical to local pollution problems. For the location and information on proper disposal of your waste visit this web site now. http://www.stopwaste.org/hhw.html.

Storm water runs off streets and driveways and eventually ends up in creeks and in the bay without treatment.
