Respect our waters

Respect Our Waters is a campaign to raise awareness about the problem of stormwater runoff and encourage residents to help prevent it. Our goal is to educate homeowners and residents on the many small steps they can take to keep our waterways clear of pollutants.

One of our new initiatives is Adopt-A-Storm Drain, which is an effort to have residents take responsibility for their storm drains and prevent litter and pollutants from entering waterways. Visit Respect Our Water's website to learn more about the initiative and how to get involved.
