Source Water Protection

Source water protection is everyone's responsibility. There are passive measures you can take to protect water quality from your own home or active volunteering opportunities. See below.

Improper disposal of medicines, pesticides, solvents, paints, antifreeze, oil and gasoline all contribute to worsening water quality and can be lethal to fish, animals and aquatic life.

You can contact your municipal government for information about problem waste drop-off times, and where to report an illegal dump.
