Welcoming Sign
(1 of 19) (7782 views)

East_Beach_Santa_Barbara_California_20101008_00_140337_8476BCX.jpg

The sign said in its upper left, "East Beach." Below that read: Beach Open

The most recent bacteria testing indicates the ocean water is within acceptable health standards for contact recreation.

Thank you for doing your part to keep the water clean.

The larger part of the sign to the right read: Clean Water

Santa Barbara County has some of the world's most beautiful beaches.
We all need to do our part to protect them from pollution.

Creek and ocean water pollution results when animal droppings, trash, food wastes, garden chemicals, and automotive by-products, such as oil and other fluids, enter our waterway.

Remember, pollution along streets and sidewalks enters storm drains, then creeks, and flows straight to the ocean.

You can help:

  • Clean up after your pet
  • Dispose of trash in receptacles
  • If you own a septic system, have it serviced regularly
  • Properly dispose of all yard waste, or, better yet, compost it
  • Recycle used motor oil and dispose of hazardous waste properly
