Each residential homeowner produces waste that contributes to water pollution.

What residential waste contributes to water pollution?
Grass clippings, fertilizers, yard waste in the curb, discharging chemicals, soaps, cleaners, detergents, oils, grease, fuels, garbage, dirt, concrete wash water, sewage, and hazardous materials are all waste that is generated by our homeowners.

Steps for preventing water pollution:
- Wash your car in a grassy area in your yard
- Blow your grass clippings back onto your yard
- Sweep dirt and grass from your sidewalk and driveway into your yard or collect and dispose of at the city’s tree and compost site.
- Make sure your garbage can lid remains closed, so trash is not blowing around your neighborhood
- Clean out any catch basin grates that are near your home.
- Do any vehicle maintenance indoors or make sure you clean up maintenance residue, ie. oil and grease
- Sweep fertilizer from sidewalks, driveways, and the street after application
- Pick up your pet waste and put it in the garbage

What NOT to do:
- Sweep or power wash your driveway into the street
- Drain your pools and hot tubs into the street
- Wash away residue into the storm sewer or street
- Dump anything directly into the storm sewer

WHAT YOU DUMP IN THE STREET ENDS UP IN OUR LAKES!!!

To make your infographic fit our community, you should put some cows in the creek (Center Creek), and livestock in the lake (like they are allowed to in the country).
