What can you do?
Storm water contamination occurs when chemicals, debris, and waste enter the storm sewer system. These materials can enter into the system through:
  • The illegal dumping of products or waste into the storm sewer system and/or curb and gutter
  • The over application of pesticides, herbicides and fertilizers
  • Leaking fluids from motor vehicles

Once these hazardous materials enter the storm sewer system they drain to our rivers where they can:
  • Harm fish and wildlife
  • Promote weed growth
  • Create stagnant pools that breed disease carrying pests
  • Inhibit the natural beauty and safety of our outdoor recreation site


    You can help to protect the City’s storm sewer system by:
    • Picking up any spills of automotive fluids, pesticides, fertilizers or other materials on your property immediately so they do not reach the curb and gutter
    • Use only the amount of pesticides, herbicides and fertilizers that is necessary to do the job
    • Dispose of empty containers of automotive fluids, pesticides, fertilizers or other materials properly by enclosing them in a plastic bag before putting them in the trash
    • Bring household hazardous waste to scheduled Household Hazardous Waste Collection Days.
