Ways You Can Help

Consider Credits


Check out the ideabook to get ideas on how you can get a credit on your stormwater fee and improve water quality at the same time. 

Protect and Inspect Septic


Have your septic system inspected every three years and your tank pumped every three to five years. Learn more about septic maintenance.

Pick Up After Pets


Keep bacteria out of our streams by picking up after your pets at parks and at home.

Don't Dump Waste


Don't dump anything other than stormwater down stormdrains. They go directly to our streams.

Mulch Mow


 Don't rake or blow leaves or grass clippings into the street. Instead put them back into your lawn, bag them or compost them. Mulching leaves back into your lawn increases soil health and saves you time, money and effort.

Don't Forget Sediment


 Sediment is a pollutant too. Working on a home project? Block stormdrains from any sediment runoff and cover exposed piles of bare soil.

Car Maintenance


Wash your car on the lawn so runoff is filtered before it gets to the stormdrains. Check for and fix small leaks- even small leaks have an impact!

Keep Trash Out


Keep lids secure on outside waste and recycling containers. Debris that is left or spills out on streets and sidewalks ends up in streams. Responsibly dispose of your waste.
