Scoop the Poop

Dog poop left on the ground is not a small problem. It is estimated that the typical dog excretes between one half to three quarters of a pound of waste per day. In San Diego alone, there are an estimated 600,000 dogs - that is roughly 136 million pounds of poop per year.

Education Programs

 

Watershed & Pollution Prevention Education

In collaboration with I Love A Clean San Diego (ILACSD), Think Blue is proud to offer standards-based classroom presentations for middle and high school students within the City of San Diego. Our watershed presentations teach students the importance of water quality protection and help students identify everyday actions they can take to keep their local watershed healthy. Students discuss watersheds, urban run-off, the water cycle, food webs, biomagnification, eutrophication and marine debris.

Best Management Practices (BMP) Maintenance Inspections

Structural BMPs are permanent storm water treatment features incorporated into the design of many newly developed or redeveloped properties. To continue functioning properly, these BMPs need to be maintained regularly.

Owners and operators of these properties are required to conduct regular maintenance activities, as per the property's "Maintenance Agreement" (Storm Water Management and Discharge Control Maintenance Agreement) signed with the City of San Diego (City) and filed with the County Recorder's Office.
