Savor Summer While Saving Local Water
In Texas, summer is the time to enjoy local lakes, rivers, streams and creeks, but some people unknowingly pollute and impair these water bodies with their daily activities. Even if these activities do not occur in a specific water body, they still have the potential to pollute our waters through storm water runoff.
When it rains, cooking oil and grease, motor oil and fuel, trash, pet waste and other materials deposited on yards and streets are washed into the storm inlets and carried into area creeks. Water transported by the storm drainage system does not receive treatment for pollutant removal before entering bodies of water. Any pollutant deposited in the storm drainage system will eventually run into local streams and rivers, the source of drinking water for North Texas.
