Protecting Our Creeks & Bay

Cleanbay.org – a project of the City of Palo Alto Watershed Protection Group – is here to keep pollutants out of creeks and San Francisco bay by treating 22 million gallons of wastewater each day and by providing programs and educational services to inspire ongoing protection of our waterways when at home and work.
