ATASCADERO — The City of Atascadero and the Atascadero Mutual Water Company (AMWC) are working together on the 27th Annual Atascadero Creek and River Cleanup Day to be held on Saturday, Sept. 30 from 9 a.m. until 12 p.m. and they are looking for volunteers.

Keeping Atascadero Creek and the nearby community pathways clean, attractive and inviting is a continual challenge, despite multiple and ongoing City and volunteer efforts. 

  • Participants should check in at 9 a.m. at the AMWC Yard at 6575 Sycamore Road. Volunteers can choose a location or be assigned to a specific section of either Atascadero Creek or the Salinas River.
  • Please bring work gloves, buckets, sturdy, closed-toe shoes, and water bottles.

Volunteers will assist with clearing Atascadero Creek and sections of the Salinas River, which are the primary source of recharge for Atascadero’s groundwater aquifers. Keeping these waterways healthy and free of pollution is an important part of protecting Atascadero’s water supply.
