Westside Water Quality Improvement Project

The City of Santa Barbara is constructing an ultraviolet (UV) light facility to remove harmful bacteria in the Westside Storm Drain at Bohnett Park. Polluted urban runoff from overwatering of lawns, car washing, and hosing of sidewalks and driveways, carries bacteria and other pollutants to the storm drains and creeks.

The project will:

* Improve water quality in Old Mission Creek
Provide safer conditions for children in Bohnett Park
Contribute to a healthier ocean at East Beach

Project Construction:� June-August 2006

Is it in the Bag?

Please, always pick up after you pet and help prevent viruses and bacteria from washing into our creeks and ocean.

Thanks to all who took the "Big Dog Pledge" at the Big Dog Parade and promised to pick up after their dogs this summer and encourage others to do the same!
