Pollution Prevention

Pollution prevention tips! Here are a few simple things you can do to help keep our waterways clean:
  • Never dump anything down a storm drain or drainage ditch.                                                                        Storm drains dump straight into larger waterways.
  • Never wash your driveway, instead sweep or use an outdoor vacuum.
  • Insulate your hot water pipes so it will take less time for the water in the faucet to get hot, wasting less water.
  • Never litter, on our streets or on our waterways.
  • If you wash your vehicle at home, do so on the lawn rather than on pavement.
  • Clean up after your pet! Keep fecal coliform bacteria (like E.coli) out of our creeks!
  • Use fertilizer and pesticide only when needed. (Read the labels!) The more fertilizer in a creek, the more the algae grows, which can severely lower the oxygen in the water, which stresses or kills fish.
  • In low lying areas that collect water, plant a rain garden, or a collection of plants which love this bog-like type of environment!
  • Elephant Ears, Black-eyed Susans, Asters, and Canna Lilies are some easy to grow plants that do well in bog-like conditions. A rain garden helps use that standing water, and keeps it on the ground where it can seep back into the ground, recharging our aquifer system.
  • Water your lawn less often, but more deeply. This encourages a very strong root system, and makes your lawn need less watering over time.
  • Use drought tolerant or native plants in your landscaping. This method is called xeriscaping, and it requires a ton less effort to have a beautiful garden!
