Water Awareness Month

  • Use herbicides, pesticides, and fertilizers sparingly. Use organic and more environmentally friendly products when possible.

  • Contact your water company to request a copy of the annual water quality report (also known as a consumer confidence report) and find out how frequently your drinking water is tested.

  • Dispose of medicines and household chemicals properly so they don't end up in the drinking water supply. Ask your local pharmacy about pharmaceutical take-back programs.

  • Dispose of trash and pet waste properly so they aren't washed into storm drains where they may pollute washes and streams, and groundwater.
