Priority B: Reduce Toxins, Hazards and Contaminants in Our Waterways

Priority B projects use multiple strategies to reduce and remove contaminants in our local creeks, streams and bays. Along with mercury treatment systems in our reservoirs, projects under this priority prevent toxins from entering waterways by working with municipalities and other agencies across the region to reduce runoff pollution. The priority includes funding to support the implementation of green stormwater infrastructure and provide rapid emergency response to hazardous materials spills and support volunteer cleanup efforts.

Project B1: Impaired Water Bodies Improvement

Project B2: Inter-agency Urban Runoff Program

Project B3: Hazardous Materials Management and Response

Project B4: Support Volunteer Cleanup Efforts
