Be a Part of the Stormwater Solution
What is the problem?
Every time it rains, gallons and gallons of polluted runoff flow into our creeks, streams, rivers and ponds. Polluted runoff may include motor oil, yard clippings, pesticides, soil, fertilizers, trash, and litter. The pollutants come from yards, driveways, gutters, and are sometimes dumped directly into storm drains by neighbors who do not know that storm drains are NOT connected to the waste water treatment systems. Everything that goes down a storm drain eventually ends up in one of our waterways. These pollutants degrade the water quality and are harmful to us and the enviroment.
How can I help?
Use fertilizers and pesticides as directed.
Keep grass clippings, trash, and dirt off the streets and out of the gutter.
Compost your yard waste.
Park your car on the grass before washing.
Spread the word about protecting our waters from polluted runoff to friends and neighbors.
Please pick up after your pet.
Do not blow, sweep, hose, or rake leaves into the street, gutter, or storm drain.
