Daily Trivia!

Scoop your poop! Er, your dog’s poop that is.

Everyone is responsible for clean water!

You’ve heard it before, but did you know there’s a real reason for doing this? More than just courtesy to your neighbors and to save the soles of your shoes.

Pet waste contains bacteria and viruses that contaminate waterways and make living things unhealthy. Pet waste also has nutrients that promote excessive algae growth which, when dead, robs the water of dissolved oxygen that fish and other aquatic dwelling creatures need to survive.

Bacteria and viruses

Just like fertilizers, pesticides and other chemicals in your yard, pet waste is also washed down the storm drain during rainfall events.

Each year Falls Lake has to shut down beaches due to high levels of fecal coliform. Straight from your pooch and into your water supply.

Protect your water sources and pick up after your pet!

Clean Water Begins with You and Me!
