Do business with a Clean Water Business Partner

If you’re looking to clean your carpets, install new landscaping, build an addition, or remodel your home, consider using the services of a Clean Water Business Partner to ensure that your project will not contribute to urban runoff pollution. Each Clean Water Business Partner has made a personal pledge and ongoing commitment to educate their customers and to help keep Chico’s creeks clean by employing best management practices which prevent runoff pollution from their daily business operations. These businesses pay special attention to use safer products and to prevent fertilizers, pesticides, chemical wastewater, paint products, and general construction debris and byproducts from being dumped, washed or broomed into our gutters and storm drains.

The City of Chico does not endorse the businesses listed as Clean Water Business Partners. The Clean Water Business Partnership (CWBP) program acknowledges the businesses only for their pledge to use Best Management Practices (BMPs) to protect local water quality. Please use due diligence to investigate the CWBPs further as needed.
