Be a Doggydoo Right!
If pet waste is left on the ground, it may eventually make its way into a nearby storm drain or stream the next time it rains. Did you know...
- Storm drains in streets and yards direct storm runoff to the nearest stream or into the ground
- Decaying pet waste consumes oxygen, releases ammonia, and carries harmful bacteria, viruses and parasites, such as E. coli, that can threaten the health of humans and wildlife
- Pet waste contains nutrients that promote weed and algae growth
Please do the right thing—be a Doggydoo Right!
