What You Can Do to Help Clean Water
With Your Pets
Did you know that pet waste can harbor harmful germs and bacteria such as E. coli, Salmonella and Fecal Coliform? Pet waste also contains nutrients that deplete the oxygen that fish and other aquatic life need to live. Pet waste left on the ground allows these germs and bacteria to be washed into streams, creeks and water supplies by rain and snow melt.
