Prevent Pollution to Our Waterways
Pets and Pet Waste
Preventing runoff from pet waste from entering our streets and storm drains helps protect our waterways from pollution! All sources of pollution, including runoff from pet waste, are prohibited from leaving your property; only rainwater is allowed in the streets and storm drains.
Did you know…
Pet waste contains high concentrations of bacteria. These pollutants can be easily washed untreated into our storm drains and waterways where they may degrade our water quality and harm aquatic life.
As pet waste decomposes, it demands a high level of oxygen from water. This can kill fish and plant life by reducing the amount oxygen available to them.
