Everything we do across the landscape has an impact on local water quality.
The impact can be good or bad. It is up to us to find ways to lessen the negative impacts where we can – at home, at work, or when out enjoying the river.
The loss of habitat in and around the stream makes it harder for aquatic life to thrive in our local waterways.
Pollutants degrade the water quality of rivers and streams. Most pollutants enter waterways through stormwater runoff.
Excess nutrients in bodies of water feed algae that hurt aquatic life.
It’s important to manage stormwater to reduce flooding and runoff.
We can all do our part to reduce stormwater runoff and conserve water at home.
