Preventing polluted stormwater from impacting the Hudson River and other water resources is everyone’s responsibility. Everyday activities, including washing your car, walking your dog, and gardening, can add to the pollution that runs into the Hudson. Proper storage of chemicals, cleaning of spills and grass clippings, good housekeeping, and just plain paying attention to what's happening during runoff events can lead to relatively inexpensive ways of preventing pollutants from getting into the runoff in the first place and then our waterways. Follow the links below for some more information on what you can do to help keep our waters clean.
