Storm water is collected from roadways, sidewalks, driveways, parking lots and construction sites; it then flows untreated into local streams, rivers and lakes. It is estimated that more than half of the pollution in our nations waterways comes from storm water runoff. The following are some ideas to help keep pollutants out of the storm water system.
Keep waste out of storm drains.
Keep yard clippings out of the street.
Dispose of household chemicals properly.
Clean up oil spills and fix leaking automobiles.
Use drip pans to catch engine oil and other pollutants while repairing cars.
Recycle used motor oil.
Sweep driveways rather than hose them down.
Adjust sprinklers to avoid over-watering your lawn. If water flows off your lawn, you're using too much water.
Wash your car at a commercial car wash, or on an unpaved surface.
Drain swimming pools and spas into a sanitary sewer outlet, never into a street. Check first with your local wastewater treatment plant before disposing of anything in the sewer.
