Pollution in our waterways can come from car fluids, fertilizers, home car washing, over-irrigation runoff, pet waste, pesticides, littering/trash, and illegal dumping, all of which can cause problems downstream as urban runoff.  Over-irrigation runoff can contribute to this problem as it carries these pollutants downstream and into the untreated storm drain system.  We can all help protect our environment and our waterways by using simple BMP's (BEST MANAGEMENT PRACTICES) that prevent pollution from entering our storm drains and eventually our waterways.
