What You Can Do
Tell your family, teachers, and friends that you want to protect the Sacramento and American Rivers!
Here are some things you and your family can do to prevent stormwater pollution:
Wash cars infrequently and use biodegradable soap when you do.
Recycle used motor oil and anti-freeze.
Bring leftover toxic materials to a household hazardous waste collection site.
Use water-based paints and wash up inside the classroom!
Start a recycling center for paper, glass, and cans.
Always put trash in trash cans - never in the street!
Ride your bike or the bus, or carpool with a friend.
Remind your parents not to apply fertilizer, herbicides, or pesticides if rain is in the forecast!
Use kitty litter to soak up spilled oil from your driveway. Sweep it up and throw it in the trash can.
Pick up your pet's poop using a plastic bag or pooper scooper. Then, put the poop in the trash.
