Seven simple steps to clean water

Did you know we all live on a lake or stream? It’s true -- we might not be able to see it from our window, but it’s there. It might be a small stream or ditch or even the storm drain in the street. All of these lead to a river or lake. So it’s important to remember that what we do at home affects our rivers and lakes!

Here are some simple steps you can take to help keep our water clean. Give them a try. A few simple changes can make a big difference! Plus, you’ll save time and money in the process.

  1. Help keep pollution out of storm drains
  2. Fertilize caringly
  3. Carefully store and dispose of household cleaners, chemicals, and oil
  4. Clean up after your pet
  5. Practice good car care
