Stay Cool by the Pool
It’s very important to know how to responsibly dispose of pool water and pool chemicals. When drained into the street, pool water eventually finds its way into our water supply. Watch this video to learn more.


Pick Up Pet Waste
It’s our duty as pet owners to pick-up after our pets whether we are at home, the park, or on a walk. When we don’t do our part that waste eventually finds its way into our water supply. Watch this video to learn more.

Did you know improper application of pesticides and fertilizers can lead to water pollution? Watch this video to learn more.
