Other participants include the cities of Pacific Grove, Monterey, and Salinas, along with Seaside County Sanitation District, Marina Coast Water District, Castroville Community Services District, County of Monterey, Pebble Beach Community Services District, and California American Water.
Outreach efforts include television, print, and internet postings on such media as Facebook and www.ClogBusters.org. Additionally Carmel Area Wastewater District along with Pebble Beach Community Services District participates in advertisement in the local newspaper, The Carmel Pine Cone.
