A murky mix of car oil, pesticides, and dog waste or natural rainwater? These pollutants add up and can reach the beach when they are washed into a storm drain or creek! 

The City's award-winning Keep It Clean, Malibu campaign included a Storm Drain Art Project and video PSAs featuring an urban mermaid and former Mayor Skylar Peak


Let's protect our blue backyards and underwater neighbors from urban runoff. Malibu is home to the largest Area of Special Biological Significance (ASBS), where any kind of non-stormwater runoff is prohibited.

You can help by preventing pollution to our beaches from the following sources:

  • Runoff from washing your car
  • Pet waste
  • Lawn chemicals
  • Construction debris and litter
  • Flows from overwatered landscaped areas
  • Pool or water feature drainage to the street
