Did you know that leaving your pet’s waste on the ground can contribute to water pollution? Pet waste can be picked up and carried by rainwater into storm drains, lakes, and streams. A day’s waste from one large dog can contain 7.8 billion fecal coliform bacteria. How can you help prevent pollution of water?
Be especially vigilant of picking up pet waste during the winter because when snow melts, the waste is washed into ponds, storm drains, creeks, and other water sources. Clean up bags are available for your convenience at the Hudson parks and at Barlow Community Center. Do your part to prevent pollution. Lake Erie starts here, don’t waste it.
