The Alameda Creek Watershed Forum (acwForum) is a voluntary, non-regulatory stakeholder group that supports the community's interest in protecting and achieving a healthy and sustainable Alameda Creek watershed. acwForum stakeholders include agencies and organizations with stewardship interests in, and whose purview includes, the Alameda Creek watershed, as well as watershed organization members, watershed landowners and land managers, residents, and others.

WE ARE A GROUP IN TRANSITION - The watershed's stakeholders have been working together as the Alameda Creek Watershed Council (ACWC) since 2007 and are re-branding as the new acwForum. Our new website, www.acwforum.org, will host the most current information about ACWC and the acwForum.


The Alameda Creek Watershed Council's mission and the acwForum's is to protect and enhance water-related beneficial uses and resources in the Alameda Creek Watershed in order to create a healthy and sustainable watershed for the community. The Council will promote collaboration and the sharing of information among all stakeholders.
