Did you know that the City's stormdrain system includes underground pipes, as well as surface features such as drain inlets, streets, gutters, roadside ditches, and detention basins? Its purpose is to prevent localized flooding by collecting stormwater runoff (rain that doesn’t soak into the ground) and conveying it to local creeks and the Bay without treatment. This means that pollutants entering the stormdrain system flow directly to these creeks and the Bay as well.
In contrast, the City's sewer system carries residential and commercial wastewater from sources including indoor plumbing (such as sinks, toilets, and floor drains) or industrial processes; it conveys wastewater to the water pollution control plant where conventional pollutants are removed before being safely discharged to the Bay. Most commercial carwash facilities dispose of their washwater to the sewer system after pretreatment.
Now is the time to sign up to receive car wash discount codes, for up to 1/2 off your next car wash. You will receive the code by either text message or e-mail, whichever you prefer. The first car wash discount will be sent out in March, and will be valid at any of the car wash pollution prevention partners listed here. Decreasing the amount of pollutants n our natural waterways is a team effort - thanks for doing your part!
At Monday's City Council meeting, head coach Sonja Garnett of the Academy of Art Women's Softball team came to invite the public to attend their games, as their home games take place right here in Brisbane at Mission Blue Field (475 Mission Blue Dr., Brisbane). Watch the video below to see Sonja and sophomore outfielder Hallie Curtis talk about the Urban Knights' first five games in 2015 and team dynamics -- you may also recognize some of the scenery!
Their first at-home game is on Monday, February 23rd at 11am. They play again at 1pm (yes, a double-header!). Click here for more information and to see the rest of their schedule for the season.
UPDATE - Friday, Feburary 13 at 12pm - The Tot Lot re-opened earlier this week (2/10) upon completion of the re-coating project.
* * * * *
The Tot Lot is currently closed due to a light touch-up of the previous re-coating project. The temporary closure was originally scheduled so the Tot Lot would be available for the public’s use on the weekend. Unfortunately, when the painter arrived she discovered more areas needed repair than anticipated; moisture conditions also interrupted her work. Both of these issues created a delay that will be extended until the middle of next week. We thank you for your patience as this work is being completed and the new paint dries!

Do you know anyone looking for a housemate or renter, or trying to rent out a room in their home? HIP Housing’s non-profit Home Sharing program can help make that a safe, comfortable process. HIP Housing has given free, long-term support to those who need it most in San Mateo County for 42 years. This is especially important now, as San Mateo County has become one of the most expensive areas to live in within the United States. The need for extra income is a common one, and renting out a room in your home is a great way to reduce costs and help your community.
