In total, over 230 million tons of trash accumulates in landfills yearly in the United States.

5th District Supervisor Lynda Hopkins called a meeting to gather neighbors negatively impacted by visitors to Russian River parks each summer. She invited Regional Parks director Bert Whitaker and his staff, Public Works director Johannes Hoevertsz, and our local CHP officers who patrol the Russian River corridor in weekends when the impact is greatest. Residents gathered at the Hollydale Club to listen to what is being done, and add their own ideas about what can and should be done to mitigate impacts.

A coalition of cities, counties, towns, and special districts that share the Russian River watershed have partnered to raise awareness about storm drains and their connection to the vitality of our local creeks.

The campaign focuses on raising awareness about impacts to our watershed and water quality by educating residents about one essential fact — only rain should ever go down the storm drain.
