Environment at Home

What we do in our daily lives around our home and our community, from fertilizing the lawn and garden to leaving the family pet droppings, can affect the health of our streams and rivers. It may be unintentional, but if it's on the ground rain will wash it into the storm drain and from there it goes directly and untreated into our neighborhood streams, rivers and eventually the Chesapeake Bay. This is referred to as non-point source pollution and it is generated by all of us simply from our everyday activities.
