What You Can Do for Clean Water

We must all do our part to preserve and improve the quality of water in our local waterways. Stormwater that runs off properties and into streets travels down storm drains directly to the nearest stream, wetland, lake or pond. The City works to ensure that all waterways remain clean and comply with the Clean Water Act.
