Storm drains are meant to divert storm water from our streets and prevent flooding. They lead straight to creeks and Humboldt Bay without filtration. It's against the law to throw anything in the street gutter - like litters, leaves, restaurant wash water, pet waste, cigarettes, or auto fluids like motor oil. If these items are in the street or gutter, they will wash into a storm drain and pollute our creeks and Humboldt Bay.
So please, help keep our creeks and Humboldt Bay clean by not washing materials into streets and gutters.
