Watershed Education Series Has Begun on Local Public TV

A 9-part series, featuring Sonoma Creek, is airing on KRCB.

Sonoma Creek is one waterway covered in a 9-part education series that debuted on public TV station KRCB on July 9. The segments teach people how the watersheds play a role in our everyday lives. They can be viewed at www.ourwatershedstories.org

The Sonoma segment (Part 8) describes how Father Altimira of Sonoma Mission called the area "A fountain of fountains" when he arrived in 1823. Other segments address urban creeks, dams, the web of life and the entry of water into the Bay.

The shows are underwritten in part by Sonoma County Water Agency, North Bay Watershed Association and Russian River Watershed Association.

Watershed education is great. But where is the oversight by "Fish and Game" over the abuse of our Sonoma Creek? The draining of the creek by adjacent neighbors with pumps for their individual use, and the simultaneous dumping of toxics and garbage into the creek by neighbors and others, all needs to be stopped! Where are monitors for this abuse to our central watershed?

This sounds like a great question for Patch to look into. Thanks for the comment.

We'd like to hear from other Sonomans on this issue. How healthy do you think the creek is in your area?
