Did you know that just five bags of leaves and organic debris from streets and sidewalks can contain one pound of phosphorus? Over time, this can lead to the growth of hundreds of pounds of algae.
Let’s keep leaves out of our streets and storm drains to prevent polluting run off in our lakes and creeks.
With RAIN predicted this Saturday morning, please rake leaves from your curb, sidewalk & street today or Friday to protect our creeks, rivers and lakes!
Please tell us how many bags you collected at http://freshwater.org/WorkForWater/report.php
Tell them that you heard about the Work for Water Neighborhood Challenge from the Alliance for Sustainability.
