Updated Creek Care Guide Available

Just in time for the rainy season, the City of Arroyo Grande has updated its Creek Care Guide and it is now available to the public.
The Creek Care Guide is designed to encourage and support the ongoing stewardship of creeks and tributaries in the Arroyo Grande Creek Watershed. The updated guide includes information and solutions for common creek related problems as well as how to identify non-native plants, and what to do when a tree falls in the creek. 
“At the top of our watershed in the foothills of the Santa Lucia Mountains, seeps and springs join with rain water to form the headwaters of Arroyo Grande Creek and its tributaries,” the guide reads. “Water and sediment coming off the hills are captured by Lopez Dam, on Arroyo Grande Creek. Water is released from the dam for agricultural and wildlife uses. The creek then travels through areas of prime agriculture and urban development to the Pacific Ocean.
“Our collective activities affect the land and water resources within our community, even if you don’t live right next to a creek. Acting as a watershed steward you can protect Arroyo Grande Creek and help your neighbors to do the same.”
Residents and business owners can find the Creek Care Guide on the City’s website arroyogrande.org. Printed copies are available at City Hall by request.
