Did You Know?
More than 73 different kinds of pesticides have been found in the groundwater we eventually drink.
Why You Should Be Concerned
Excess fertilizers and pesticides applied to lawns and gardens can cause plant overgrowth that clogs waterways, blocks sunlight and reduces oxygen available to fish and other aquatic life.
Yard clippings and leaves can increase organic loads to streams and can clog storm drains, preventing the passage of stormwater through a curb inlet or grated drain.
