Have you ever wondered what causes stormwater runoff and pollution? Learn about the basics of stormwater pollution, how it happens, where it comes from, and simple things you can do to prevent it. Understanding the impact of stormwater pollution is crucial for protecting our water resources, preserving biodiversity, and ensuring the availability of clean water for future generations.
In today’s topic, we will explore the importance of keeping grass clippings in your yard and off the street. By allowing the clippings to decompose and release nutrients slowly, you can provide a natural, sustainable source of lawn fertilizer that does not cost extra! Let's dive in and explore how you can contribute to cleaner, healthier waterways right from your backyard.
Trees are a good thing! However, leaves sitting on sidewalks and roadways can have unintended consequences. Learn how excess nutrients from leaves make their way to our shared waterways.
Sign up to receive alerts reminding you when rain is on the way and it’s time to take action. Alerts will be sent via text (or email) 1-2 days before a rain event reminding you that it’s time to remove street leaves.
