The Orange County Stormwater program has developed brochures for many common household activities that can impact the environmental health of our waterways.
For example, did you know that copper from the brake dust on cars are one of the most significant pollutants of concern found in our waterways? Simply picking up after your dog on walks can help keep protect our creeks, rivers, bays and ocean. What are some of the things you do around the house? Whether its painting, gardening, or changing your car’s oil, make sure you do it in a “Stormwater Safe” way.
