DO YOU KNOW WHERE YOUR STORM DRAINS FLOW?

The headwaters of the Petaluma River begin on the steep southwest slopes of Sonoma Mountain. The river flows through the old town of Petaluma, generally southward, where it becomes navigable by both small and large watercraft. The river enjoys a storied history in the town, as it has been a key commercial thoroughfare since the 1800’s.

With an enjoyable presence in the old town area, the Petaluma River is a key focal point for community events and recreational activities. It is also a rich landscape for wildlife and a variety of birds. There are many local and community efforts set to conserve and protect the Petaluma River and Petaluma River Watershed.

After flowing through the City of Petaluma the river continues through tidal marshes before emptying into the San Pablo Bay.

Remember, storm drains connect streets to creeks, which flow into San Pablo Bay. Simple changes can make a big impact. The Petaluma River is Ours to Protect.
