Southern California is lucky to have some great organizations working for clean water. Part of our passion over here at Seventy1 is to collaborate with like-minded community groups to protect our environment. As a company, we are dedicated to reducing the amount of harmful pollutants that enter our oceans through the maintenance of stormwater systems. We are also committed to educating the local community by raising awareness about the impact that stormwater runoff has on our waterways. Here’s a snapshot of some great local organizations to check out if you are interested in getting involved…
