…polluted runoff is the number one cause of water pollution in Northern Virginia? That’s right, the very same rain that washes streets, yards, and parking lots clean is sending chemicals, bacteria, and trash down the drain and into the local creeks where our kids play and fish and animals live! That’s the bad news. But the good news is that if we work together, we can clean it up! The Northern Virginia Clean Water Partners have prepared this website to help you make choices that will protect and benefit both people and the environment.

Activities of the Clean Water Partners are managed by the Northern Virginia Regional Commission on their behalf.

Northern Virginia Dog Parks, Groups, and Regulations 

Because you love your dog and the environment, take your dog to the dog park to provide them with an environment to play in and a place to do their business. At dog parks, there's always a disposal receptacle for pet waste where it won't contaminate local waterways. Here is a list of local dog parks and groups as well as pet information and regulations by county/town.
