Everyday household activities can have an impact on stormwater quality and the environment. A few examples of household activities that may contribute to stormwater pollution are vehicle maintenance (e.g. vehicle leaks, oil change, etc.), vehicle washing (e.g., soap), pets (e.g., pet waste), pool backwashing/draining (e.g., chlorine, diatomaceous earth), and lawn maintenance (e.g. use of fertilizers/pesticides, yard waste). However, by using some simple BMPs, you too can help prevent stormwater pollution.
