​We must protect our stormwater quality in the Spring!
BE A RESPONSIBLE PET OWNER:
Pet waste left on the ground can be carried by rain or irrigation water into our local creeks and rivers. Pick up after your pets and encourage others to do the same.
FERTILIZE NATURALLY:

Use compost as a fertilizer for your garden. It will keep your soil healthy, replenish nutrients that plants take out, and avoid putting harmful chemicals into our environment.

CHECK YOUR IRRIGATION
SYSTEM: 
You could be wasting water and money and not even know it! Look for water spraying on sidewalk, leaking valves, pop-up systems that are not fully extending, or plants that are blocking sprinklers.
