Did you know....
When it rains run-off carries pollution, such as animal waste, car oil and fertilizer into the nearest storm drain, ditch or culvert which leads to the nearest stream or lake. Canine fecal bacteria are a public health and environmental issue because:
• Dog waste can contain infectious roundworm eggs that may cause illness.
• Dog waste contains high levels of nutrients that can contribute to toxic algal blooms and aquatic weeds in our waterways.
• Toxic blooms and weeds harm freshwater organisms.
What can you do to help keep our water safe and clean? Follow these easy steps:
1. Pick up after your pet.
2. Throw pet waste into a garbage can.
3. Take the "Canines for Clean Water" pledge below and receive a FREE "Canines for Clean Water" dog banadana.
4. Send us a photo of your handsome hound wearing the "Canines for Clean Water" banadana.
