Improving Our Environment Through Education and Engagement

Clean Water

Keep Our Water Clean – Avoid runoff pollution into our waterways

OUTSIDE YOUR HOME

  • Use fewer and safer pesticides.
  • Use fewer and safer fertilizers.
  • Don’t water too much – weakens your lawn and causes erosion
  • If you change oil or vehicle fluids, please recycle them.
  • Check your vehicle for leaks and repair.
  • Clean up leaks and spills with kitty litter or sand.
  • If you have a septic system, have it inspected every two years.
  • NEVER put anything into a storm drain – ONLY RAIN in the storm drain!

INSIDE YOUR HOME

  • Use safer,  less toxic cleaning products – Reduce pollutants in the water and air.
  • Don’t put food scraps, oil, or grease down the drain.
