you will be taking action to reduce pollution
entering the Storm Drain System (MS4).
Pet waste carries billions of bacteria as well as nutrients that harm our waterways. Please do your part and pick it up. See our partners on the hiking trail or volunteer as a doggie ambassador through Truckee Meadows Parks Foundation!
Many activities from landscaping and yard care can contribute various pollutants to the MS4. Organics, nutrients, and yard chemicals are potential pollutants.
When disposing of household chemicals and pharmaceuticals proper disposal is key. Dumping and disposal to the sanitary sewer is illegal! Improper disposal will result in these substances getting into our waterways. Check the recycle and disposal guide provided by KTMB.
Oil drips, brake dust, tire wear can all contribute to runoff pollution. A few small steps can reduce impacts from our cars.
