CAR WASHING: Wash your car at a commercial car wash or on the lawn so that water can be absorbed and naturally filtered, avoiding streets and drains.


MAINTAIN OIL Tanks both above and underground, as leaking underground storage tanks are a major source of contamination to both surface water and groundwater.  Check tanks regularly for leaks. 


"Keep close to Nature's heart... and break clear away, once in awhile, and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods. Wash your spirit clean." ~John Muir
