Protect our Water Quality
It’s everyone’s responsibility to help protect and improve our region’s water quality. Here are some gardening tips you can follow to help protect water quality:
- Carefully follow the directions printed on containers of fertilizer, insecticides and herbicides. Do not over-use these products. Doing so can damage your plants and the environment.
- Avoid rinsing these products into the street or gutter.
- Do not use fertilizers, pesticides or herbicides before a predicted rainstorm. The rain can wash the products into the storm drain.
- Adjust sprinklers to avoid over-watering.
Remember, if it is not raining, there should be no water in the gutters or storm drains! For more information about what you can do to prevent water pollution, visit www.ocwatersheds.com.
Orange County Water District and Orange County Sanitation District are working to diversify Orange County's water supply with the development of the Groundwater Replenishment (GWR) System, an innovative water purification project that will provide a new source of locally controlled, high-quality water for north and central Orange County.
