When it rains, it...Pollutes
As rain falls on our city and lands on the roads, driveways, parking lots, and other surfaces that cannot absorb water, it picks up pollutants and carries them to our drains, lakes, rivers and streams. The primary source for the majority of these pollutants has been traced back to the daily activities of people living in developed residential areas (Envirovision et al. 2008).
However, there is good news! Actions such as picking up our pet waste, conducting regular maintenance on our vehicles, proper application of yard care products, and the timely reporting of spills can help to keep our waterways clean.
