Through the development and implementation of comprehensive stormwater pollution prevention activities, the City of Encinitas Clean Water Program serves to protect and enhance the quality of local surface waters including our creeks, lagoons, and beaches along the Pacific Ocean.
Pollution in our waterways can come from car fluids, pesticides & fertilizers, home car washing, pet waste, trash and the list goes on. These pollutants can cause problems downstream as urban runoff. Over-irrigation can contribute to this as it carries these pollutants downstream and into the untreated storm drain system. We can all help protect our environment by using simple BMP's (BEST MANAGEMENT PRACTICES) that prevent pollution from entering our storm drains and eventually our waterways.
