Chollas Creek Family Stream Team Initiative
The Groundwork San Diego Chollas Creek (GWSDCC) Chollas Creek Family Stream Team Initiative (CCFSTI) was a grant-funded effort to provide outreach and assistance by engaging the local community to participate in trash cleanup, landscape assistance, and trash collection activities to address illegally-dumped materials and pollutants in Chollas Creek. The City participated in the CCFSTI project by performing an effectiveness assessment of the Refuse Collection Event portion of the program. This program component is considered a non-structural best management practice (BMP) designed to reduce illegal dumping in the Chollas Creek watershed by providing periodic collection services where local residents can dispose of large, unwanted household items for free. Report findings on the Chollas Creek Family Stream Team Initiative are available at the link.
