2022 Stormwater Awareness Week
Help us celebrate the 5th annual Stormwater Awareness Week! Stormwater Awareness Week, celebrated October 16-22, 2022, is a regional effort that encourages communities to raise stormwater awareness via newsletters and social media posts, or with fun and educational events.
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.
