Stormwater hits home! Your everyday household activities can have a huge impact on stormwater quality and the environment. A few examples of everyday household activities which may contribute to stormwater pollution are vehicle maintenance (e.g. vehicle leaks, oil change, etc.), vehicle washing, pool backwashing/draining, lawn maintenance (e.g. use of fertilizers/pesticides, yard waste) and pet waste. However, by using some Best Management Practices (BMPs), you too can help prevent stormwater pollution.​

For additional tips, please see the following brochures:

Remember, we all need to do our part to help prevent stormwater pollution. 


Here are some BMPs for household activities which can help prevent stormwater pollution:

  • Dispose of used automobile fluids at your local garage, automotive store or at a household hazardous waste collection event.
  • Dispose of household hazardous waste properly (local household hazardous waste event).
  • Use drip pans to collect automobile leaks and spills.
  • Use your sanitary sewer cleanout when backwashing or draining your pool. Do not drain pool water to the street.
  • Apply fertilizer/pesticides sparingly and never apply when rain or wind are in the weather forecast.
  • Pick up pet waste from yard, bag and tie, and dispose of properly.​
