Clean Water
Stormwater and wastewater eventually end up in the Bay.  The water that comes out of your faucet is treated before it reaches your house and then it enters the sewer system as wastewater. The wastewater that leaves your house is treated in a plant before it is discharged to the Bay. However, stormwater is not treated.
The stormdrain system consists of a network of pipes throughout the city that convey surface water from the streets to the creeks. Since the stormdrain system is not connected to the sewer system and does not filter water or debris, any pollutant that flows into the storm drain ends up in our creeks, the San Francisco Bay, and eventually the ocean. San Pablo has 3 creeks that drain into the Bay; Rheem, San Pablo, and Wildcat Creeks.

For this reason, only stormwater (rain) is allowed in the gutters and stormdrain system. The City of San Pablo has a comprehensive program to prevent stormwater pollution which includes business inspections, public outreach, construction inspections, illegal dumping abatement, and maintenance of the creeks and stormdrain systems.
