Water Forum

Keep Our River Running Wild

The American River is, literally and figuratively, the lifeblood of our community. From the first founders to today, the river has provided life-giving water to the people and animals who call the Sacramento region home. It's also a rich ecosystem that sustains myriad species and is part of a larger system, as well as a rich environment for recreation. Generations of Sacramento-area residents have grown up on and along the banks of our rivers, staying active and healthy while connection with nature and those we care about. Managing the river is a complex task undertaken by a variety of agencies. The Sacramento Water Forum is a diverse group of business and agricultural leaders, citizen groups, environmentalists, water managers, and local governments working together to balance two goals: providing a reliable and safe water supply for our region in the long term and preserving the fishery, wildlife, recreational, and aesthetic values of the lower American River.

Sacramento County Household Hazardous Waste

The Usual Suspects

Out of concern for the environment, California requires that all hazardous materials, such as pesticides, paints and batteries, be kept out of landfills. But what is a resident supposed to do with all that stuff? The answer is Household Hazardous Waste (HHW). Sacramento County residents can bring their HHW to four locations to dispose of these materials free of charge, or they can seek out any number of community disposal options. Lack of knowledge of how and where to dispose of certain items is leading to materials going into the landfill, where they could pose environmental problems. Many times, HHW involves reusing the material, closing the loop in the recycling process. This publication seeks to give residents a better understanding of how and why they should dispose of their HHW properly.
