  Accumulated trash is clogging portions of the Laguna de Santa Rosa, but most of it is being washed downstream from the urban centers within the Laguna’s watershed. So a recent clean-up effort may be just a temporary improvement.

The Laguna de Santa Rosa watershed reaches from Hood Mountain to Sebstopol and from Windsor to Cotati.
