CALIFORNIA, Marin RCD – Discarded vehicles, home appliances, household furniture and more than 100 tires will be removed from an unnamed tributary of Stemple Creek in west Marin County this week.
The Marin Resource Conservation District and Marin County Stormwater Pollution Prevention Program are spearheading the Aug. 13-16 cleanup of the 1,584-foot-long stretch of the tributary.
Stemple Creek was found to be a significant site of illegal dumping in West Marin, according to the county. It will be stabilized and restored after the cleanup.
The Marin Resource Conservation District secured a $40,000 state grant from CalRecycle’s Farm and Ranch Solid Waste Cleanup and Abatement Grant Program to help pay for the cleanup.
