Tips for Avoiding Stormwater Pollution
Don’t dump anything except water into storm drains.
Take paint, chemicals, cleaners, fuels, pesticides, and hazardous waste to a
household hazardous waste facility
Don’t pour household products such as cleansers, beauty products, used motor oil and other auto fluids, paint, lawn care, or household chemicals on the ground or in storm drains.
Don’t pour any of the products listed above down the sink or flush them down the toilet.
Sweep driveways and sidewalks clean. Remove debris and residue that could end up in a storm drain from concrete and paved areas around your house.
Recycle yard debris or use it to make compost rather than raking it into streets where it can wash into storm sewers.
Keep your lawn clean by picking up pet waste on a regular basis. Waste washed into a storm drain goes directly into rivers, streams and lakes untreated.
Don't over water plants and the lawn. Make sure water doesn't wash over streets and sidewalks.
When washing the car, park it on the grass instead of in the driveway or use a commercial car wash.
Dispose of unused medication properly so it doesn't end up in the landfill.
