    December 23, 2010 (San Diego's East County)-- Videographer Billy Ortiz traveled to Flinn Springs Park yesterday, capturing storm-swelled headwaters of Los Coches Creek.  He spliced yesterday's shots together with some October images of areas further downstream, including a spectacular waterfall at the long forgotten Los Coches dam in Lakeside.  Then he added a soundtrack to create this one-of-a-kind music video.  Enjoy!

     Event Follows EnviroFair for Los Coches Creek Students on “America Recycles Day”


    November 11 (2011) -- The community is invited to join “America Recycles Day” on Tuesday, Nov. 15, with a neighborhood cleanup and recycling event, which follows an all day “EnviroFair” for students at Los Coches Creek Middle School in Blossom Valley.
      

    The trash cleanup and recycling effort runs from 3:30 p.m. until sunset at the school at 9669 Dunbar Lane in unincorporated El Cajon. Everyone is welcome, and minors must have a signed permission slip.

    “Countywide, our residents and businesses have achieved a 57 percent recycling rate, and we’re going to work together to make it even higher,” said County Supervisor Dianne Jacob. “We hope East County residents will come out and show their commitment to the neighborhood and the environment on Tuesday for America Recycles Day.”


    America Recycles Day is a national program by Keep America Beautiful. It was founded in 1997 to promote environmental citizenship and encourage action.


    Las Coches Creek is an apt setting for the East County observation. When the middle school opened in 2005, County staff helped the school establish its campus-wide recycling program, with paper, can and bottle collection in every classroom and bins around campus.

    The County Department of Public Works, Solid Waste Planning and Recycling section, is sponsoring the school fair and cleanup, with I Love a Clean San Diego organizing.
    The school’s EnviroFair is an all-day event, with students cycling through a series of booths, presentations and hands-on activities.

    The Solid Waste Planning and Recycling section oversees recycling programs in the county’s unincorporated areas. School and community educational events like this one on Tuesday are an essential part of promoting recycling awareness and compliance with the County’s mandatory recycling ordinance.

    Every year, the County funds between 25 and 50 school presentations. Last fiscal year, the Recycling section reached 3,751 students at 25 schools and donated 65 recycling bins.

    The County’s recycling efforts include recycling assistance for businesses and multifamily housing. The Recycling section last year helped 90 businesses start recycling programs and over 15,000 residents start recycling, with the County donating 8,205 bins to households and property managers.

    The County’s recycling hotline, 1-877-R-1-EARTH (877-713-2784), directs people to recycling centers and answers questions about recycling household and hazardous waste. Its website,www.wastefree.org, provides a database of recycling resources.

    March 19, 2017 (San Diego's East County)--An estimated 900,000 gallon sewage spill was identified Friday, March 17th at Los Coches Creek near East Sierra Alta Way in unincorporated El Cajon, the County announced today. The sewage entered the creek after an underground sewer pipe became exposed and significantly damaged during the February 27th storms.

    County of San Diego Public Works Crews discovered the pipe Friday morning during a routine infrastructure inspection and controlled the spill by approximately 1 p.m. the same day. Water quality samples are being collected along Los Coches Creek to evaluate the extent of potential sewage impacts.

    The closure of Los Coches Creek to the public will remain in place until samples confirm that the water is no longer impacted from the spill.
