Feature Pollutant – Muddy

 

Pollutant: Muddy

Source: Construction sites, backyards

Muddy, also known as Sediment, is a sludgy mess that really bogs things up. When it escapes construction sites and backyards, it flows down the drain and into our rivers and creeks, where it smothers precious plants and chokes marine animals. To stop Muddy, sweep you driveway instead of hosing it down.

 

 

Here’s what you can do: Stop dirt turning to mud. Plant more grass and trees.
