Keep bacteria out of our streams by picking up after your pets at parks and at home.
Don't Dump Waste
Don't dump anything other than stormwater down stormdrains. They go directly to our streams.
Don't rake or blow leaves or grass clippings into the street. Instead put them back into your lawn, bag them or compost them. Mulching leaves back into your lawn increases soil health and saves you time, money and effort.
Don't Forget Sediment
Sediment is a pollutant too. Working on a home project? Block stormdrains from any sediment runoff and cover exposed piles of bare soil.
Wash your car on the lawn so runoff is filtered before it gets to the stormdrains. Check for and fix small leaks- even small leaks have an impact!
Keep Trash Out
Keep lids secure on outside waste and recycling containers. Debris that is left or spills out on streets and sidewalks ends up in streams. Responsibly dispose of your waste.
Enjoy our beautiful streams and rivers. Our rivers and streams are a great asset to our City and everyone in it. Get outside and experience the many meanders and riffles.
