Protecting Our Watershed is Everyone's Business
- Always remember, anything that enters a stormwater or storm sewer system is discharged untreated into our waterways.
- To help prevent leaks or spills when working with oils, fuels, or chemicals always inspect containers for holes or leaks.
Only use containers designed for the intended purpose, such as using an oil drain pan when changing the oil in your car or truck.
- Use dry, absorbent materials, such as rags and cat litter to clean up spills. Make sure to place used cleanup materials in plastic
bags or sealed containers and dispose of properly.
- Repair auto leaks.
- Use pesticides and fertilizers sparingly.
- Cleanup after your pet(s).
- Use a commercial car wash or wash your car on your lawn or unpaved surface.
- Sweep up yard debris rather than using the hose.
- Compost or recycle yard waste whenever possible.
- Sweep up and properly dispose of construction debris, such as concrete and mortar.
- Water from swimming pools may be drained (slowly) during warm weather, if chlorine residual
is less than 1 mg/L (ppm), free of debris, free of cleaning chemicals, and has a pH between 6 and 9.
