Inner Coastal Cleanup Day
The Public Works Department held its 20th Annual Inner Coastal & Watershed Cleanup Day on Saturday, September 23. There were 136 volunteers that removed 1,150 pounds of debris from the Brea Creek Channel, west of the Downtown area. This annual event is a great way to support a healthier watershed. Thank you to all the volunteers who spent their time making Brea beautiful.

The Boiling Crab’s newest location is coming soon to Downtown Brea, along Brea Blvd. This California-born, global chain features a variety of fresh seafood with a Cajun flair. The Boiling Crab also offers specialty beers, margaritas, and micheladas. With their other restaurant locations spanning as far as China and Australia, Brea looks forward to welcoming The Boiling Crab to the City.
The Public Works Department has completed weed abatement work on a portion of Open Space Land. The project focused on removal of dry brush behind the Somerset Condominium community. The City contractor spent two days and removed 40 yards of dry brush, dead tree branches, and leaves in the area. Working alongside the Brea Fire Department, Public Works was able to give the contractor clear and specific guidance on boundaries to meet code compliance. We appreciate the efforts of both the Fire and Public Works departments by working together to help reduce the spread of fire in the chance that there is a wildfire in our area.
