In preparation for the rainy season, the Town will be doing maintenance on the Atherton Creek starting the week of September 11. This is part of our ongoing efforts to keep our creek healthy and prevent flooding.
We kindly ask you to do your part by clearing tree limbs and other debris that have fallen from your property into the Creek. According to the Atherton Municipal Code Section 8.50.20, it is your responsibility to maintain the watercourse through your property free of trash, excessive vegetation, debris and other obstacles which would pollute, contaminate, or retard the flow of water through the watercourse.
Please remove any obstructions that could impede the flow of water or cause damage to the creek ecosystem.
Thank you for your cooperation and support.
