Creek Week Wrap-Up
Tour of Upper Arroyo Burro Restoration Project at Barger CanyonThank you to everyone who joined us for our 17th annual Creek Week celebration last month!
We were excited to host our first Creek Week Scavenger Hunt (see some of the photo submissions received from players above). The top three players won $100, $50, and $25 gift certificates to the Clean Creeks Certified Business of their choice!
We had 12 volunteers join us in removing 37 pounds of trash and debris from West Beach as part of the annual Coastal Cleanup Day event on Saturday, September 17. Countywide over 800 volunteers helped clean up 26 sites, removing over 3,125 pounds from our local beaches.
On Wednesday, September 21, six community members joined our Creeks Advisory Committee members for a tour of our Upper Arroyo Burro Restoration Project at Barger Canyon (photo above left).
On Saturday, September 24, our annual tour on the Land Shark was sold out, and participants had a great time learning about the Creeks Division's projects and programs as we cruised around town and then into the Harbor.
We are looking forward to next year's event - to keep up to date on Creek Week 2017, like us at

Permeable pavers in the roadway on N. Quarantina StreetContractors are finishing up a few minor items on the 700 and 800 blocks of N. Quarantina Street to wrap up our Storm Water Infiltration Demonstration Project, and the street is now open!
New permeable pavers installed in the roadway and sidewalks are designed to allow storm water (rain) and urban runoff to flow between the pavers and into the ground below rather than flowing into storm drains, creeks, and the ocean untreated.
Funding for this project was provided primarily through a grant agreement with the State Water Resources Control Board, and by hotel visitors through Measure B.
Join us for a ribbon cutting celebration on Wednesday, November 16 at 11am!
