Watershed Initiative

Watersheds are areas of land where water from rain flows downhill into a waterway, such as a river, stream or lake.  Watersheds act like funnels - collecting all the water within an area and channeling it into a waterway.  Unfortunately, pollution from our yards and streets also drain into these waterways creating harmful conditions for humans and wildlife.

Chula Vista contains two main watersheds – Sweetwater and Otay – which both eventually drain into the south San Diego Bay.  To help reduce pollution runoff and improve the health of these watersheds, the Department of Conservation & Environmental Services is implementing the following programs and policies:
