Drinking Water Protection
The Water You Drink is Yours to Protect!
Most residents within the City limits get water from the City's water system, which is supplied from ground wells. It only takes a small amount of pollutants to contaminate an aquifer, which is the ground water the City and many non-City residents draw their drinking water from. It is everyone's responsibility to properly manage, store and dispose of hazardous substances so that the citizens of the community can save on high costs associated with groundwater cleanup or replacement of contaminated wells.
Ways to protect groundwater:
- Educate others about sensitive areas around public water supply wells. See map for wellhead protection areas.
- Plug unused or abandoned water wells.
- Use pesticides and fertilizers sparingly.
- Repair auto leaks.
- Dispose of household hazardous waste, used auto fluids (antifreeze, oil, etc.), tires and batteries at designated collection or recycling locations.
- Clean up after your pets and properly manage livestock waste.
- Make sure septic system is functioning properly.
- Use a commercial car wash rather than washing your car at home.
- Sweep up yard debris rather than hosing down areas. Compost or recycle yard waste when possible.
- Clean paint brushes in a sink, not outdoors. Properly dispose of excess paints through a household hazardous waste collection program.
- Sweep up and properly dispose of construction debris.
