Clean Water Tip
Runoff from rain water 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 into storm drains, in the City of Battle Creek, please call the 24-hour City of Battle Creek Dispatch at 269.966.3493. Outside of Battle Creek, please call the State of Michigan 24-hour Pollution Emergency Alert System at 800.292.4706
What you can do
Rain barrels are an excellent resource to help reduce storm runoff and lower water bills. Purchase a rain barrel now through June 21!
Words of Wisdom
Keep close to Nature’s heart… and break clear away, once in a while, and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods. Wash your spirit clean.
