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

Remember, 

"Clean Water Starts With YOU!" ​
