Operation Clean Sweep
Due to the most recent May 3rd rain event, the Waterfront Department has cancelled this year’s Clean Sweep event. Unlike the municipal sewer system, water carried by a storm drain system is not treated. To minimize potential health risks, we are following County guidelines that recommend that people do not swim, play, or surf in the ocean, creeks and harbors for at least three days following a rain event.
For more information about the event or to volunteer, contact Angela Rodriguez at ARodriguez@SantaBarbaraCA.gov or (805) 564-5519.
