Reduce Stormwater Pollution

Reduce stormwater pollution

You can prevent polluted runoff from leaving your site by keeping outdoor areas as clean as possible. Sweep outdoor areas frequently; never wash or hose down pavement unless you can capture all the wash water. Wash vehicles and equipment inside over a drain that leads to the sanitary sewer. Regularly clean and maintain storm drains and other facilities on your site so they continue to function effectively.
