Storm Drain Awareness

Everything that goes down a storm drain flows into our lakes and streams.  
Follow these tips below to keep our waterways clean:

Sweep extra fertilizer, grass clippings, and dirt on your driveway back onto your lawn 
Hosing down your driveway sends these pollutants into storm drains that lead to lakes, streams, and beaches.

Only allow rain to go down the drain
Never dump motor oil, chemicals, pet waste, leaves, dirty or soapy water, or anything else down the storm drain.  All of these materials pollute our lakes and streams.

Label your storm drains
Volunteer to label storm drains in your neighborhood to inform residents that storm drains flow directly to lakes and streams.  Contact your local community for more information on storm drain labeling programs.
