The mission of the Clean Water Program is to protect the creeks and rivers of the Monterey Bay and San Francisco Bay watersheds by fostering best practices in County operations, promoting increased public awareness of stormwater pollution prevention, and supporting innovative approaches to meet state and federal stormwater regulations.
Report An Illegal Dumping or Discharge
Discharge of anything other than clean rainwater into storm drains is illegal because it presents a serious threat to fish, wildlife, drinking water and marine life. The County investigates and enforces legal prohibitions against illegal dumping to the storm drainage system. To report illegal discharges, illegal dumping, or accidental releases to a storm drain, drainage ditch or culvert in the unincorporated areas of Santa Clara County, please call (408) 918-4600
