Water the Grass, Not the Sidewalk
When water runs off grass, the products applied to lawns often end up in nearby streams and harm aquatic life. Water collects dirt and other pollutants on its way to storm drains, which flow directly to local waterways without treatment. Here's what you can do to protect water quality from home:
- Observe your sprinklers to see if they are spraying water on the street or sidewalk.
- If needed, adjust their position and the watering schedule to avoid overwatering.
