Help keep rivers and streams clean
(May 02, 2013)
Did you know that when it rains or when snow melts, water that runs into storm sewers takes everything in its path, including grass clippings, leaves, fertilizers, pesticides, oil, pet waste and more.
This water and the contaminants it carries winds up in rivers and lakes.
There are several things you can do to control this pollution, including sweeping grass clippings onto the grass, washing cars at a commercial car wash, checking your car for leaks and much more.
