Have You Seen Stormwater Pollution In Your Neighborhood?
Stormwater Pollution can be found all around us, no matter what season of the year it is! The things you do around your home or in your yard effect our area streams, rivers and lakes. Anything other then stormwater entering a storm sewer is stormwater pollution, and is called an Illicit Discharge. Examples of an Illicit Discharge include pet waste, excessive lawn fertilizer, dumped grass clippings or leaves, paint, oil, soapy water from washing floors or carpeting, sewage, and laundry water.
Examples of an Illicit Discharge
|Latex Paint in Road Ditch||Sewage in Stormwater|
|Litter and Trash||Yard Waste in Stream|
Do your part to keep pollution out of the storm sewers where you live!
