Pledge to Scoop the Poop

Many people may not realize that pet waste left on the ground can get washed into storm drains, which lead directly to our local streams and rivers. Pet waste contains bacteria and parasitic organisms that, when washed into local waterways, can contaminate streams and rivers. Take the Canines for Clean Water pledge to keep our local waterways clean by always “scooping the poop." Questions? Email us at WaterResources@springfield-or.gov
