  1. Never dump anything onto the street, down a storm drain or into a drainage ditch.  
  2. Pick up after your pet. Bag it and throw it into the trash.
  3. Compost or bag your leaves and grass clippings for curbside collection.   If your sanitation service is provided by the City, leaf pick-up is provided by the City's sanitation services (paper bags only).
  4. Use fertilizers and pesticides sparingly.
  5. Put litter in its place.
  6. Keep your septic system maintained to prevent leaks.
  7. Check your vehicles for leaks and repair them as soon as possible.
  8. Always recycle your motor oil and other vehicle fluids.
  9. Wash your car over a grassy area or at a commercial car wash that recycles water, not on your driveway.
  10. Tell a friend or neighbor how they can help prevent stormwater pollution
