The West Valley Clean Water Authority (Authority) is doing its part to support the community’s response to coronavirus. Our primary mission is to protect the environment and local waterways by reducing pollution that enters our storm drains. We are proud to have a role in helping us all learn more about stormwater pollution and our responsibility in protecting local waterways—virtually!
Every Wednesday, the Authority will be posting educational content and activities for you and your family on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. You’ll also find the information listed below on this page. We invite you to post on your social media accounts when you’ve participated in one of our activities, and tag us too!
Download the free coloring page below to keep the kids busy on Thanksgiving! When they're done, upload a photo of their drawings and tag us on Facebook (@cleancreeks). We'd love to see what you create!
Picking up your pets’ waste is one of the easiest ways you can help protect local creeks and the San Francisco Bay from pollution! This week, WVCWA invites you and your family to take the Pet Waste Pledge. The first 50 people to pledge will receive free, biodegradable pet waste bags and a leash dispenser!
