Why do we need Creek Week?

Among several reasons:  

  •  Trash and storm debris clog channels which creates local flooding problems
  •  Chemical fertilizers, pesticides, motor oil & paints pollute the water, killing plants & wildlife, and contaminates drinking water sources
  •  Sewer backups and overflows are harmful to local waterways
  •  Stream bank erosion means loss of valuable trees and wildlife habitat
