You Make A Difference!


You can be the solution to stormwater pollution in your home! Did you know that small steps you take can help protect water quality, keep our beaches clean, and protect our ocean's fish and other animals from getting sick?

Try out these pollution prevention and conservation tips to make a difference at your home or school:
  1. Pick up pet waste from your yard.
  2. Don't litter - recycle when you can.
  3. After yard work, help your parents bag their grass clippings, leaves, and sticks for pick-up.
  4. Tell your parents when you see any oil or other liquid leaking from their car. Help them use less water when washing their car by turning off the hose when not in use. Always rinse and drain dirty or soapy water in the grass.
  5. Reduce run off and reuse your rain water! - install a rain barrel to capture water from your roof and re-use the water in your garden when its not raining! By capturing and re-using the run off from your house you can help reduce flood waters that pick up pollution in our yards and keep it from flowing into our creeks.
  6. Remind friends and family to not dump anything down the storm drain.
Teach your parents, friends, and teachers on how they can prevent stormwater pollution too!
