Reducing Polluted Stormwater Runoff

Follow these tips to reduce polluted stormwater runoff:

  • Never dump anything into a storm sewer or storm drain
  • Take used oil to your local waste oil recycling site (360 Summit Avenue North)
  • Dispose of hazardous wastes properly
  • Discard pet waste in a garbage can
  • Wash vehicles in a grassed area so the spent water can soak into the ground
