Clean Water…
10 Things You Can Do to Prevent Stormwater Runoff Pollution

• Use fertilizers sparingly and sweep up driveways, sidewalks
   and gutters.
• Never dump anything down storm drains or in streams.
• Vegetate bare spots in your yard.
• Compost your yard waste.
• Use the least toxic pesticides that will still get the job done.
• Follow labels, and learn how to prevent pest problems.
• Direct downspouts away from paved surfaces; consider a rain
   garden to capture runoff.
• Take your car to the car wash instead of washing it in the driveway.
• Check your car for leaks and recycle your motor oil.
• Pick up after your pet.
• Have your septic tank pumped and system inspected regularly.
