Clean Up Pet Waste

Clean Up Pet Waste
Posted on 04/14/2022
Pet waste is a pollutant. When left on the grass, rain water eventually washes it into storm sewers that take it directly to our lakes and rivers.

In the lake or river, pet waste can release ammonia as it decays, which along with low oxygen levels and warm temperatures can kill fish. Pet waste also contains nutrients that encourage weed and algae growth, and it carries contaminants and diseases that can make the water unsafe for people and pets.
