Summer Water Fun & Stormwater Health
One of a child’s favorite activities during summer is swimming. Here are two great tips to ensure the health and safety of our ocean and waterways during summer vacation.
Tip One: When emptying a kiddie pool or water table, be sure to slowly release water to allow it to percolate into the ground and avoid causing runoff that may drive debris and chemical-tainted soil into storm drains.
Tip Two: Ballon toss in the pool is always fun. However, be sure to pick up broken balloon pieces. If balloon pieces make it into the storm drain, they can be deadly to wildlife when the colorful trash is mistaken as food!
