Pet Waste


Dog poop is a major contributor to stormwater pollution. Rain and snow melt carry pet waste across yards, dog parks, and trails on its way to creeks via our streets and storm drains. Pets and urban wildlife are major sources of E-coli contamination in our waterways. Pet waste contains fecal coliform bacteria, which can spread diseases like Giardia, Salmonella, and Campylobacter, causing serious illness in humans.
