monthly message


PHARMACEUTICALS – NEVER flush unused medications down the drain or toilet.  They can end up in the ground, and eventually in the water we share.  Take them to one of the redbox locations in the Battle Creek area. For more information, click here.


Fact: Over 10 million gallons of groundwater are pumped daily to provide drinking water to Battle Creek area residents.  Protect groundwater; it's what we drink! 


“When one tugs at a single thing in nature, he finds it attached to the rest of the world."
