Rain or snowmelt and water from things people do, like overwatering the lawn or letting fertilizer fall into the street drain
The biggest threat to our nation’s water quality, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency
As water makes its way to the storm drain it picks up pollutants like oil from car leaks and bacteria from pet waste
We can choose products carefully and shape our lawns and pavement so water sinks in
When we do, runoff is reduced, pollutants filter out and streams and groundwater are protected
Let’s make the small, important changes that will reduce that threat and improve water quality and our lives!
