The Problem with Pet Waste

We love our dogs! Being a responsible pet owner means cleaning up after our pooch and properly disposing of the poo by bagging it and throwing it in the garbage.

This story from Canton, MA shows what can happen when pet waste bags are tossed into storm drains.

Unfortunately, this story could have easily taken place in Portland or a number of other Southern Maine communities. Our storm drains are not connected to the sewer system. The water and pollution that flows into the drains goes directly to our streams and Casco Bay. Help protect our water resources and save thousands of dollars in costly repairs by throwing Fido's poo in the trash!
