Ways to Reduce Stormwater Pollution

Pesticides and Fertilizers

Use products only as directed and do not over-fertilize. Never apply before rain. Store in sealed, waterproof containers.

Leaves and Yard Debris

Keep leaves out of storm drains. Never blow them into the street. Mulch mow, compost or put out with the trash in clear plastic bags.

Pet Waste

Clean up all pet waste – even in your own backyard. Properly dispose of it in the trash. Bacteria in pet waste can cause human illnesses.
