Monthly Message

Fall leaves- the next time you rake your leaves, mulch, bag, or compost them, don't let them run into the storm drains. Adopt a storm drain on your street and please keep it clean and free of leaves, dirt, grass clippings and other debris.

Drink tap water instead of bottled water. Gallon after gallon of purified tap water from area water treatment plants are pumped directly to our homes and businesses everyday for less than a penny a gallon. Low cost, No bottles. No Waste.
