Non-Point Source Pollution and How You Can Help Keep Your Community Clean and Safe
Stormwater Management for Homeowners and Businesses
Non-Point Source Pollution is pollution that does not come from a single point or location; this type of pollution is carried into lakes, rivers and streams by storm water runoff. When it rains, the runoff collects pollutants from streets, lawns and parking lots (such as oil, gasoline, fertilizer, pesticides, litter and animal wastes) and carries pollutants into the water body.
How You Can Help Minimize Non-Point Source Pollution
1)Don’t dispose of any materials (including grass clippings, motor oil, detergents, etc.) down storm drains
2) Properly maintain storm drains – make sure they are free from trash and other debris
3) When washing vehicles at home, make sure water and detergents flow into the grass, not the street
4) Use fertilizers/pesticides sparingly; dispose of empty containers properly
5) Pick up your animal’s waste
6) Recycle when possible and properly dispose of used household and office equipment and materials
7) Install and maintain erosion control devices such as silt fencing and hay bales when grading land
Remember – Storm water runoff does not flow into a treatment plant – it flows directly into our streams, creeks, and lakes. Please do your part to keep our waterways clean and safe for all of us to enjoy!
