You are made of water, Protect yourself.
A bit about how we pollute our watersheds:
Storm water runoff is a result of rainfall and melting snow. As this water flows to storm sewers, it picks up pollutants. Pollutants in storm water runoff include oil and antifreeze from streets and driveways, leaves and grass clippings from gutters and streets, as well as animal wastes, fertilizers and pesticides from lawns and gardens. The loss of vegetated areas due to urbanization and development dramatically increases the volume of storm water runoff. Urbanization also increases the amount of pollutants available to be picked up by storm water. Storm sewers are designed to prevent flooding, but also provide direct routes for pollutants to lakes and streams. By controlling the pollutants in storm water runoff, we can control the amount of pollution entering our lakes and streams. See what you can do to better protect our lands and waters.
