Anything in the street will eventually end up in the storm sewer system and then a local river. Litter or toxic substances are obviously harmful but soil, sand, leaves and grass clippings also cause harm by clouding water, reducing depth, altering habitat, and preventing spawning for some species. All materials that enter storm sewers from the street carry vehicle fluids and exhaust particles that end up in our streams.

We can all make a difference by simply keeping grass clippings and leaves out of the street or ditch and away from storm drains. If you see debris in the street, remove it, talk with the homeowner and suggest they check out this website to learn more.
