Take Action With Simple Steps
Don’t Dump Into Storm Drains
Everything that enters a storm drain goes directly to local waters. Don’t dump, wash, or rake anything into the path of a storm drain.
Unfortunately, lawn care chemicals often wind up washing right into local waters.
Conserving water when you’re working outdoors can reduce the potential for contaminants to wind up in local waters.
Keep runoff off paved surfaces with rain barrels, cisterns, and rain gardens- even downspout extenders.
Scoop The Poop, Then Trash It
Keep pet waste from entering local water bodies. When you’re out on a walk, pick up after your pet and throw it in the trash.
