Clean Water Tip

FERTILIZER

The State of Michigan has passed a law banning the use of harmful phosphorus lawn fertilizers in order to protect our water resources. Check the label before buying fertilizer. The bag will show a series of three numbers. Look for the ZERO in the middle to find a phosphorus-free fertilizer that won’t pollute our water.

What you can do

Take Action

Adopt a storm drain on your street and please keep it clean of leaves, dirt, grass clippings, and other debris.
