First Flush 2011
During the first rain water washes significant amounts of pollution off street surfaces, driveways, and curbs and into storm drains. This concentrated mix of often polluted water flows directly from these storm drains into creeks, rivers and the Monterey Bay. Learn more about First Flush.
