The DPW would like to share some simple steps that you can take to protect our waterways.
While fertilizers are good for plants, they're not so good for water quality. Fertilizers get washed down the street where they enter storm drains and enter our local waterways. In rivers, ponds, and streams, fertilizers are pollutants that harm fish and wildlife, can cause smelly algae blooms, and can even affect our drinking water.
