It may be difficult to imagine, but pet waste can be a major source of bacteria and excess nutrients in local waters.
Pet waste on the ground allows harmful bacteria and nutrients to wash into storm drains and eventually into Long Island Sound.
THE GOOD NEWS IS THAT THERE IS AN EASY SOLUTION!
When walking your pet, please remember to pick up the waste and dispose of it properly.
Treat as solid waste and dispose of appropriately....in your garbage can.
