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.
