How can you help?

  • Be careful what you put down the drain. Bug killer, paint thinner and other chemicals are difficult for treatment plants to remove.
  • Take short showers or shallow baths.
  • Make sure to turn the tap off completely. One tap dripping twice a second will send over 50 gallons of clean water to the treatment plant each week.
  • Turn off the water while you’re brushing your teeth, washing your hands, or washing the car.
  • Do not pour grease down the drains.
  • Do not put prescription drugs down the drain.
