HOUSEHOLD TIPS

FOR PROTECTING

OUR DRINKING WATER SUPPLY

 



·          Reduce the amount of fertilizers, pesticides, or other hazardous chemicals that you use.  Buy only what you need so that you don’t have to dispose of leftovers.  Read all the labels and follow directions.

·         Use organic lawn and garden alternatives that do not contain synthetic chemical poisons.

·         Reduce the use of products that contain any of the following words on their labels:  caution, warning, danger, poisons, flammable, volatile, caustic, or corrosive.

·         Recycle used oil, automotive fluids, batteries, and other products.  Don’t dispose of hazardous products in toilets, storm drains, wastewater systems, creeks, alleys, or the ground.   This pollutes the water supply.
