Water Quality

Best Management Practice Information

City staff will periodically post documents and links in this section with tips for residents to help improve the water quality in the runoff from their properties.

Please be mindful of how your lawn is treated for weeds and fertilizers, as chemical treatments contribute pollutants into the runoff which in many cases ends up in local ponds, creeks and rivers.
