Bag It, Don’t Blow It

Autumn means falling leaves, but don’t fall into the habit of putting them down the storm drain or along side the curb after raking. That could not only result in backed up water but can pollute our waterways.

Don’t Flood Us with Garbage

Soft drink cups, paper bags, burger wrappers and other trash can clog the storm drains and cause rainwater to back up into thet streets. So please, put them in the trash and not down the drain or on the ground.

What you can do to improve water quality in your neighborhood:

  • Don’t over-fertilize your lawns.
  • Clean up your dog poop.
  • Mow high, mow often, and keep grass clippings on your lawn.
