Are you Contributing to Non-Point Source Pollution?
Non-point source pollution (also called polluted runoff) comes from many sources and occurs when rainfall, snowmelt and water from washing your vehicles moves over and through the ground. As it moves, this runoff picks up pollutants like dirt, oil, and fertilizers and carries them to lakes, rivers, streams and even our underground sources of drinking water.

Suggestions to Reduce NPS pollution

The Klamath Watershed Partnership Urban Issues Working Group can coordinate a storm drain stenciling project for you by providing maps, paint, exuipment, directions safety materials, guidance and educational handouts. This is a great idea for a service-learning project for scouts, schools, sports teams, youth groups, businesses, neighborhood groups, clubs, or even families.
