​Clean Streets Help Rivers Stay Clean

During the summer, outdoor activities like gardening, home and landscape projects, dog walking , and visiting parks and rivers can generate trash, harmful chemicals or other waste that can impact our waterways. Rain and sprinklers can carry these pollutants into storm drains, which lead directly to creeks and rivers. These pollutants can harm fish, wildlife and the quality of our waterways. We can protect our creeks and rivers by following these simple


  • Toss waste in a trash bin.
  • Avoid using pesticides or fertilizers . Use eco-friendly options.
  • Find a household hazardous waste center to dispose of old batteries, unused paint, and light bulbs.
  • If you have a pet, scoop their poop, bag it up, and toss it in the trash can. Bring pet waste bags for walks.
  • Take your car to a commercial car wash that recycles and treats dirty water.
