April 20, 2002|From Times Staff Reports

A new Web site will give information about pollution, runoff, rainfall and other water-related topics, county officials said Friday.

"We developed this to help the public ... learn about the multitude of factors that affect water quality in Orange County," said Vicki Wilson, director of the county's public facilities and resources department. "Our message to the public over the past several years has been, 'The ocean begins at your front door.' Our new Web site further explains what that means and how residents can help."

Residents can log on to www.ocwatersheds.com/ to report illegal dumping, check hourly rainfall rates in their cities and learn more about water-quality issues.
