Each year, tons of harmful and dangerous pollutants, bacteria and trash are carried through our neighborhoods and enter local creeks, reservoirs, lakes, the Delta, San Francisco and San Pablo Bays. As water drains from streets, parking lots, and lawns, pollutants are picked up and enter the drainage system through thousands of catch basins throughout Contra Costa County. From there, this untreated polluted water flows through a system of pipes, open channels and creeks into the Delta and Bay.
The local Danville Clean Water Program regulations affect residents, businesses and Town operations. The following is a general list of program activities in Danville:
The goal of Danville’s Clean Water Program is to protect local water quality, keep trash and other pollutants away from Contra Costa County waterways, and meet mandated requirements of the Federal Clean Water Act and State Clean Water regulations. To accomplish these goals, Danville operates a local Clean Water Program in Danville and in addition, has teamed up with all the incorporated cities in Contra Costa County, the Flood Control District and the County in a cooperative effort to operate the Contra Costa Clean Water Program (CCCWP). The Program is committed to reducing storm water pollution by implementing the requirements contained in the Municipal Regional Permit (MRP) issued by the San Francisco Regional Water Quality Control Board (SFRWQCB). These regional requirements include, but are not limited to, creek monitoring, special studies, public education and outreach activities.
The Program began in 1992 in accordance with the Towns Clean Water Ordinance.
