 Water Pollution Prevention

Help protect our water resources
Our water resources are one of the reasons that Sarasota is such a special place to live. Every resident and visitor has a role to play in protecting our resources, and what you do on your property does make a difference.
Every time you allow wastewater from washing your car, or washing your house or driveway; whenever you don’t pick up pet waste; if you dump a mop bucket outside; or if you use excess fertilizer on your lawn; chemicals, bacteria, nutrients and other harmful materials can flow into the stormwater system and eventually into our bays.
Unlike sanitary sewers (sinks, toilets, etc.) which flow to wastewater treatment plants, water that runs off sidewalks, alleys and street gutters is directly connected to our local waterways.
