Lawn Care Tips from the Connecticut River Stormwater Committee

When it rains, fertilizers washing off lawns, flow directly down storm drains, and into a nearby lake, stream, or river. 

Good practices around your home and garden that eliminate contaminated storm flows will help reduce costs associated with water pollution and get us to fishable and swimmable lakes and rivers in the Pioneer Valley region. 

Please do your part and join your friends and neighbors for clean water. The three practices listed here give you a great starting place!
