Pollutants Found In Homes
• The #1 surface water quality problem nationwide involves fluids from vehicles such as oil, gas and antifreeze.
• Hosing off pavement surfaces wash pollutants into storm drains which lead straight to our rivers. When possible, sweep up the driveway instead.
• Locate a hazardous waste drop off facility for old paint, pesticides, solvents and batters. Street litter such as styrofoam, plastic and paper blows into our inlets.
• Keep trash bins covered and do not litter.
• Pet waste left on the ground gets carried away by storm water, contributing harmful bacteria, parasites and viruses to our river. Clean up after your pet.
