What You Can Do at Home & Work

The environmental threats to our watershed posed by sewer spills and the improper disposal of toxic materials are problems we can solve together. 


Your District is executing a comprehensive plan to repair our aging collection system, but we depend on you to not only care for the private sewer pipes on your property, but to be mindful of what you put down the drain.
