WHAT WE DO MAKES A DIFFERENCE

 

Our Actions Matter



Here are some additional tips:

  • Conserve water every day. Take shorter showers, fix leaks & turn off the water when not in use.
  • Don’t pour toxic household chemicals down the drain; take them to a hazardous waste center.
  • Use hardy plants that require little or no watering, fertilizers or pesticides in your yard.
  • Do not over apply fertilizers. Consider using organic or slow release fertilizers instead.
  • Recycle yard waste in a compost pile & use a mulching mower.
  • Use surfaces like wood, brick or gravel for decks & walkways, which allows rain to soak in and not run off.
  • Never pour used oil or antifreeze into the storm drain or the street.
  • Pick up after your dog, and dispose of the waste in the toilet or the trash.
  • Drive less—walk or bike; many pollutants in our waters come from car exhaust and car leaks.
  • While you are walking, biking or hiking consider picking up trash along the way.
