Please join us for the quarterly Trinidad Bay Watershed Council Meeting. Meeting attendees will hear an update about the El Nino forecast for the upcoming months and Watershed partners will have an opportunity to provide updates about activities in the Trinidad-Westhaven area. There will be an introduction to the new Clean Beaches Initiative grant program that the City is starting to implement. TBWC Agenda Oct 19 2015.
The Clean Beaches Initiative project will use water quality, land use and septic information to prioritize parcels in three watersheds for reduced cost septic system inspections to identify those that are failing or poorly functioning. Assistance to repair and upgrade those systems will be provided on a sliding-scale, income qualifying basis.
All City of Trinidad water customers are now required to limit outdoor watering to Wednesdays and Saturdays. See the City of Trinidad’s Water Restrictions Notice to customers. In response to State requirements, on May 13 the City Council declared a drought emergency and implemented water conservation measures that include restrictions on outdoor watering. These restrictions apply to all Trinidad water customers, inside and outside of the City limits. The Statewide mandatory conservation measures are targeting a 25% reduction of water use throughout California. Please visit our Drought page.
