Mark your calendars and plan to join us for the January Trinidad Bay Watershed Council meeting to provide input about current and proposed projects in the Trinidad Bay watersheds, discuss issues of common concern, get the latest news from watershed partners and learn how to use nature based solutions to conserve water and prevent water pollution.
Information about the Septic System Repair Assistance Program will be presented, followed by a discussion about improving participation in the funding assistance program. Other meeting topics include the TBWC membership drive and updates about ongoing and proposed projects in the Trinidad-Westhaven watersheds to improve water quality, trails and reduce water use.
The first round of repairs/replacements for the Septic System Repair Program will be completed this fall. Meeting participants will be asked for suggestions about how to reach out to homeowners that could benefit from funding assistance to repair or replace failing systems in the priority areas of Parker Creek, lower Luffenholtz Creek and Joland Creek watersheds. The program provides funding assistance of 25% – 75% for Septic System/OWTS repair/replacement on an income based sliding-scale, funded through a Prop 84 Clean Beaches Initiative Grant.
All are welcome at the Trinidad Bay Watershed Council meeting Monday July 18 at 6:30 pm in the Civic Club Room at City Hall.
Meeting topics will include:
Trinidad Bay Watershed Project Updates
- Assistance Program for septic system repair and replacement – Clean Beaches Initiative Water Quality Restoration Program
- Climate Change Planning for the General Plan Update
- Citywide Green Infrastructure Project to address drought, bluff stability and stormwater issues, funded by the Ocean Protection Council
