How should I dispose of my pet's waste?
If left on the lawn, pet wastes can be washed into the storm drain system by rain or irrigation watering. Pet waste adds hazardous bacteria and organic compounds that can alter a creek's water chemistry and can lead to the death of plants and fish.

Please be sure to dispose of pet waste in the garbage to reduce this risk of contamination.
