HEALTHY HOUSEHOLD HABITS
HELP PROTECT OUR WATER:
As you look ahead to making plans for your home
improvement projects, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency
recommends the following steps to insure that you keep the storm water
system free of polluted runoff.
* Before beginning an outdoor project, locate the
nearest storm drains and protect them from debris and other materials.
* Sweep up and properly dispose of construction debris such as concrete
* Use hazardous substances like paints, solvents and cleaners in the
smallest amounts possible and follow the directions on the label. Clean
up spills immediately and dispose of the waste safely.
* Purchase and use non-toxic, biodegradable, recycled and recyclable
products whenever possible.
* Clean paint brushes in a sink, not outdoors. Filter and reuse paint
thinner when using oil-based paints. Properly dispose of excess
paints through a household hazardous waste collection program.
* Reduce the amount of paved area and increase the amount of vegetated
area in your yard. Use native plants in your landscaping to reduce the
need for watering during dry periods. Consider directing downspouts away
from paved surfaces onto lawns and other measures to increase
infiltration and reduce polluted runoff.
