Here in the City of Dixon, water moving down gutters and storm drains flows first to Pond C (or one of the City’s other stormwater basins), then flows onward through the Delta waterways and finally ends up in the ocean.
This means that anything that stormwater carries along with it (like plastic bags, litter, dog waste, motor oil, antifreeze, or lawn chemicals) ends up in our natural environment - possibly polluting drinking water and harming wildlife.
You can help prevent stormwater pollution!
|Solano RCD’s Watershed Explorers program teaches schoolchildren about stormwater pollution prevention.||Community volunteers planted sedges and rushes in Pond C’s wetland basin and bioswale. These native plants help filter stormwater and keep it clean. |
