Storm Water Pollution from Lawn Care Practices

(Source KSWO) (Source KSWO)

LAWTON, OK (KSWO)- Winter is almost over and the mowing season is about to begin!  Remember that grass clippings blown into the street can clog storm drains and cause flooding. If the grass clippings and leaves enter our waterways, they can cause toxic algae blooms.

Storm water runoff is the biggest source of water pollution but you can be the solution.  Remember only rain down the storm drain!  Report illicit discharges, leaks and spills to the Storm water Hotline, 581-3565.  Learn more at Cityof.Lawton.OK.US or call 581-DIRT, that’s 581-3478.
