Clean Streams Can Start With You

What we do at home and work affects water quality. You can help keep water clean by:

  • Planting native plants and trees.
  • Properly disposing of chemicals and hazardous waste.
  • Keeping storm drains clear of debris like leaves and litter.
  • Always picking up and throwing away pet waste.
  • Community or neighborhood clean-ups. 
  • Mulch leaves on your grass to help soil conditions.
  • Fix car leaks to protect water quality.
