See how you play a part in North Ogden City's Storm Water Management Plan.
Household and Home Maintenance
Buy household products such as cleaners and furniture polish labeled "non-toxic". Use small quantities and purchase only the amount you need.
Follow manufacturer's recommendations for use and storage of all toxic products, including cleaners, solvents and paints.
Properly dispose of household hazardous wastes (any toxic substances) at solid waste facilities.
Rinse paint brushes in the sink. Filter and reuse paint thinner or brush cleaners. Dispose of used materials at a hazardous materials collection event.
Recycle reusable materials. Throw litter into trash cans and keep cans tightly covered to prevent foraging by neighborhood animals.
Lawn and Garden
Minimize the use of pesticides, herbicides and fertilizers; apply carefully and sweep up excess.
Use a broom rather than a hose to clean up sidewalks and driveways. Do not hose down gutter.
Deposit leaves and clippings in a garbage can or a compost pile.
Divert rain spouts and garden hoses from paved surfaces onto grass or garden areas to allow filtration through the soil. Water only your lawn and garden.
Control sediment migration and erosion, don't let it reach the gutter, sweep up and re-use it.
Do not over-water -- Don't be a "gutterflooder".
Pick-up, bag and dispose of pet waste in a garbage can.
Recycle used motor oil and antifreeze at automotive centers.
Have your car inspected and maintained regularly to reduce leakage of oil, antifreeze and other fluids.
Reduce automotive emissions through regular auto maintenance, ride sharing, and by using public transportation.
Conserve water when washing your car and use biodegradable soap.
Non-point source pollution comes from many sources and its control is everyone’s responsibility. Pollution prevention and good housekeeping practices are essential to reducing non-point source pollution. From the individual gardener to the public official, everyone has a stake in protecting our resources. The best place to get started is your own backyard and garage.
