Overview

Hands in the air

Helping to prevent polluted rainfall runoff from contaminating San Antonio's natural waterways goes further than knowing how to use, store and dispose of hazardous products.  You and your fellow residents have opportunities throughout the year to help protect our rivers and creeks through volunteer activities, responsible stewardship and community awareness:

 

HELP PICK UP TRASH & DEBRIS THROUGH ADOPT-A-SPOT

Hundreds of City-owned rights-of-way, street medians, drainage channels and green spaces across San Antonio are available to voluntarily adopt and maintain throughout the year.  Adopt-A-Spot volunteers help prevent trash and other debris left on the ground from sweeping into our rivers and creeks when it rains or floods.  Adopt-A-Spot sites are excellent opportunities for you and groups of volunteers to show pride in your community and stewardship toward our environment.

INVITE US TO PRESENT FOR YOUR GROUP OR EVENT    

Our Remember the River campaign staff educator is ready and available to offer free presentations on runoff pollution prevention to your homeowner/neighborhood association, civic group, class, volunteer or other community group.  We can also attend and participate in your upcoming community event as an educational resource exhibitor.  Help us increase awareness about storm water runoff pollution prevention by letting us educate your group and event participants.

REPORT ILLEGAL DUMPING

Do you know what an illegal dumpsite is?  Can you identify one?  Do you know how to report one?  Reporting illegal dumping in your area helps the City of San Antonio prevent illicit trash and debris from impacting our waterways and increasing flooding risks.  Learn more about illegal dumping in San Antonio and how you can help reduce it.
