Get Involved!

We need you to help make our waters healthier! You can learn more by checking out our Board meetings and by doing your part at home, work, or worship sites.

Water pollution comes primarily from the water and snowmelt running off of driveways, rooftops, yards, sidewalks, streets, parking lots, and construction sites. This is called stormwater runoff. It can go into storm drains and storm sewers or end up in creeks, ponds, lakes, rivers, and public ditches. It doesn’t go to a water treatment facility. Any water that soaks into the ground can become groundwater, maybe carrying pollutants to drinking water aquifers. The cheapest way to deal with pollution is to prevent it in the first place; we all need to do our part!
