Let us keep Michigan's water pure by using simple tips!

Don't dump hazardous material down the drain - dispose of it properly.

Get your septic tank pumped and inspected every 2-3 years!

NEVER dump anything down storm drains! Do not let leaves or soil enter storm drains. They usually lead to the nearest stream or lake!

Protecting Lake Michigan begins in your yard - use fertilizer without phosphorus!
