We all live in a watershed, so every time someone learns about "clean water habits" and changes the way they do things, it helps improve our community’s surface water resources (like our creeks, streams and rivers). Every time we prevent pollution in the first place, it saves money and effort. That's why educational and volunteer programs play such an important role in the Clean Water Program.
The Clean Water Program promotes educational partnerships with local groups and agencies, such as the City of Vancouver and Washington State University Extension, to increase public awareness, encourage environmental stewardship to keep dirt and other pollutants out of waterways.
The program also works with individuals, schools, businesses and property owners about how we all can do our part to protect Clark County's water resources for future generations.
Remember, "we all live downstream."
