Stormwater Pollution Mitigation: A Partnership with the City of Sedona and OCWC

Carroll Canyon Cleanup with Sedona Women, City of Sedona, and Oak Creek Watershed Council
May 2022

In partnership with the City of Sedona, OCWC hosts cleanup events that encourage residents of the greater Sedona area to learn about stormwater pollution, the sub-basins and watersheds within the Oak Creek Watershed and Sedona area, and how they can play an important role in protecting Oak Creek.

Here are some steps you can take to ensure you do not pollute our Arizona waterways:

Keep Sedona’s storm water clean:

  • Personal responsibility to put trash and garbage in proper receptacles
  • Picking up after domestic animals
  • Participating in organizations, such as Oak Creek Watershed Council, that pick up debris in the Sedona area
  • Participating in neighborhood trash pick-up days
  • Properly disposing of waste oil, paints, and pesticides
  • Sweeping instead of washing driveways
  • Not draining garbage can and other container wash water to the storm drainage system
  • Please visit the City of Sedona’s website to learn more!
