Stormy Says: Anything that is dropped on the ground, on a sidewalk, in a parking lot or anywhere at all is litter that is washed into storm drains by rain and snow melt. From the storm drain, all of this trash frequently goes directly to a stream, then to the Potomac River and on to the Chesapeake Bay. Cigarette butts, plastic bags, drink bottles, cans, cardboard and dog poo are washed into streams where they harm the fish and the animals that depend on clean water to live. Trash destroys natural habitats and pollutes the rivers and the bay. Please don’t throw anything from your car. Please don’t litter.
