Pesticides & Water Quality
What's the Connection?
Pesticides are designed to kill pests, but they can also harm people, pets, and other creatures in our environment. Pesticides applied around the outside of the home or business can be washed into storm drains by rain and sprinklers.

These pesticides can end up polluting our creeks and waterways, damaging these already compromised wildlife habitats.

Only pesticides that are licensed for direct application to water are permissible for surface water contact, and even these must be used prudently.
