Clark County is a member of the Regional Coalition for Clean Rivers and Streams. This partnership is a cost-effective way for the Clean Water Program to enhance education and outreach to Clark County residents.
The Coalition is a group of agencies and municipalities in the Portland/Vancouver metro area dedicated to educating the public about the impact stormwater runoff pollution has on the health of our rivers and streams for people, fish and wildlife.
Coalition members came together to pool resources and develop a single, region-wide public awareness campaign that could reach more than 1.4 million people living in the four-county area. Public information and awareness are key components in addressing the issue.
The goals of the Coalition's campaign:
- Raise public awareness about the connection between stormwater pollution and prevention and the recovery of endangered fish in our region.
- Promote individual responsibility for, and link individual behavior to, prevention of stormwater pollution.
- Provide a central contact for stormwater pollution prevention
Meet stormwater permit conditions for public awareness and education.
