How can you prevent stormwater pollution?
Cigarette Butts And Other Trash:
- Put your cigarette butts and other litter in garbage bins
- If there is no garbage bin handy, hold onto your litter until you find one
- Pitch in and help clean up littered areas
- Sweep up and properly dispose of construction debris like concrete and mortar
Hazardous Waste and Solvents:
- Use hazardous substances (paints, solvents, cleaners) in the smallest amounts possible
- Store substances properly
- Clean water based painting supplies over soil
- Filter and reuse paint thinner
- Dispose of excess paints during household hazardous waste collection programs
- Clean up spills immediately
- Dispose of solvent waste by following the instructions printed on the label
Swimming Pool and Spa Care:
- Drain your pool only when the test kit does not detect chlorine levels
- Whenever possible, drain your pool or spa into the sanitary sewer system
- Properly store pool and spa chemicals to prevent leaks and spills, preferably in a covered area
Lawn and Garden Maintenance:
- Use fertilizers and pesticides sparingly
- Select native plants and grasses that are drought tolerant and pest resistant
- Compost or recycle yard waste
- Cover piles of dirt and mulch to prevent them from washing into drains
- Sweep up yard debris, rather than hosing down areas
- Plant grass or vegetation where soil is exposed
