monthly message


Rainwater is the only thing that should wash down our storm drains.  Anything else - grass clippings, leaves, motor oil, even fertilizer  - is considered an ILLICIT DISCHARGE.  If you witness suspicious dumping, please call your local municipality. 


Act:  MAINTAIN SEPTIC SYSTEMS as improperly working septic systems can pollute both surface water and groundwater.  If you have septic system, have it checked and pumped every few years to insure it is working properly. 


“The environment is where we all meet; where all have a mutual interest; it is the one thing all of us share."
