Preventing Pollution In Our Stormwater

Keeping pollutants out of the stormwater is less expensive than installing stormwater treatment facilities. The following are ways to prevent pollution from entering our stormwater:

  • Leave grass clippings on the lawn
  • Sweep paved areas to keep waste and debris out of storm sewers
  • Reduce fertilizer and pesticide use
  • Direct downspouts to lawn and gardens
  • Wash cars on lawns or at a car wash
  • Clean up pet waste
  • Dispose of toxic waste properly
