National Water Quality Month - Nine Steps You Can Do Now To Improve Water Quality - Power Sweeping - 1800SWEEPERAugust is National Water Quality Month in the United States.
Emphasizing how interlinked water systems are, the Audobon Society points to the dangers of runoff from agriculture, forestry, construction and people's personal yards:
"Each individual household may not produce enough pollution to force a beach closing or cause a fish kill, but the combined output of all the homes in a community can be severe. And, consider that about half of the U.S. population lives within 50 miles of a coastline where runoff flows quickly to the ocean. This is why watershed protection — attention not only to the body of water but the area that drains into it — is important."
The Environmental Protection Agency, which reports that 40 percent of the nations waterways suffer water quality problems, has a detailed watershed database, which allows users to locate which watershed they live in and learn about how polluted it is and what actions they can take to protect their regional water quality.
Clean Sweep offers the following Nine Steps You Can Do Now for individuals and families to prevent water pollution from their homes:
  1. Not using antibacterial soaps or cleaning products
  2. Not flushing unwanted medications down the toilet or drain
  3. Not putting anything but water down storm drains
  4. Fixing leaks that drop from cars
  5. Liners in driveways to collect oil and other materials
  6. Avoid using pesticides or chemical fertilizers
  7. Choosing nontoxic household products when possible
  8. Picking up after pets
  9. Paving properties with permeable pavement solutions
