We may be polluting our own water

When people think about sources of water pollution, they may readily identify industry and agriculture as the primary culprits.

We rarely consider that actions we take or practices we follow in our own yards can have a huge impact on the quality of the water we drink, cook with, swim in or boat on.

The fact is, however, our yards can be a major source of water pollution.

So, the next time you're out appreciating home and business landscapes, think about the things we all can do to protect water quality.
