Help fight winter flooding - keep your catch basins clean!

P2 Weekly Tip: Now that it’s the rainy season, here are some P2 tips to help keep our stormwater healthy:

-Use brooms and rakes to clean up in the yard and nearby sidewalk (instead of using the water hose).
-Pick up litter!
-Use caution with pesticides, herbicides and fertilizers. Do not apply if rain is in the forecast.
-If you do work on your car at home, try to contain and clean up any spills so that they don’t flow into the storm drains.
