Stormwater Awareness information
Experts believe that almost 70% of the pollution in our rivers and lakes is carried there by stormwater runoff. Stormwater can also cause erosion and flooding. Water contaminated with sediment and pollution takes more money to treat before it can be used for drinking water.
How can you get involved?
Attend or set-up a socially distanced community or neighborhood clean-up (litter, streams, stormwater ponds, etc)
Clear storm-drains of leaf debris in your neighborhood
Plant native trees & plants in your garden or with a local community group
Install or DIY a rain barrel to catch stormwater runoff
Build a rain garden on your property
Attend an educational workshops or tours (residents/businesses/contractors)
Check the weather report before applying fertilizer to your lawn or any oil or chemicals to driveways and sidewalks. This will protect the environment and your pocketbook.
Make sure lawns have 3-4 inches of topsoil under the grass. This will reduce runoff, as well as make lawns easier to maintain.
Always pick up and properly dispose of pet waste
