You may not be able to see the lake or stream from your house, but it’s there!

Many of the storm drains in the street lead directly to our lakes and rivers without being processed at a treatment plant, so what we do at home impacts our water resources everywhere. Pet waste, oil, leaves and dirty water from cleaning your car can enter storm drains and flow downstream where it harms aquatic habitats and makes water unsafe for swimming, canoeing and other water-related fun.  


We all live in a watershed and can help care for it by keeping our stormwater clean!  Learn more about stormwater management and your role in water protection here.  

To report suspicious activity, or if you see someone dumping anything in the storm sewers, streets, rivers, or even on the ground, please contact your local municipality »
