 Pick Up After Your Dog Signs
Encourage neighbors with signs

Every time it rains, thousands of pounds of  pet waste flow into storm drains and then to streams, rivers and lakes untreated. A recent U.S. Geological Survey study of streams and creeks in the KC metro area showed that bacteria associated with pet waste is the source of about 25% of bacteria sampled in local waterways.

 How Can I Reduce Pet Waste Runoff?

Talk with your neighborhood organization and to your homeowners association to encourage residents to pickup after their dogs. 

  1. Pickup pet waste from your yard.  It is not a fertilizer.
  2. When walking your dog carry a bag and pickup after your dog.
