Clean Water. Healthy Life.
Everyone can play a key role in cleaning up our polluted waterways through changes in behavior. The majority of pollution in our urban waterways can be linked to common lawn care practices such as applying excess fertilizers and pesticides, or not properly disposing of pet waste.
Before learning how you can make a difference it’s important to understand some key elements regarding water pollution.
Runoff - Runoff is stormwater that flows over impervious surfaces such as rooftops, driveways, sidewalks, streets and to some extent over residential lawns. As it flows, it picks up oils, lawn chemicals, pet waste and other pollutants along the way.
Storm Sewers - take stormwater runoff to nearby lakes and streams, untreated.
Watersheds - Everyone lives in a watershed. A watershed is an area of land that drains to a common body of water, such as a nearby creek, stream, river or lake.
Stormwater runoff is the biggest problem facing our streams, creeks and rivers today; fortunately there are many things YOU can do to improve water quality AND save money.
OTHER INFORMATIONAL LINKS
We had to postpone the Spring Stream Team Clean Up to July 13th at Mildred Keeney Park (55 NE Poe St). The time will be at 10 AM. Make sure you wear your old shoes and clothes and be ready for some fun in the water, while you are helping with the overall water quality. Remember, this is not just for the Village of Claycomo, but for the entire environment. .
Outdoor Water Quality (Away from Home)
Litter is not just unsightly. It gets washed into storm drains and into rivers and streams where it can harm fish and wildlife.
