Be kind to the fish – stop contaminants from washing off the roads into the river
Below are helpful tips and tricks for how to do this, as well as some hints for the quiz.
- When you put the bins out for collection, check the street gutter outside your property for litter and dispose of it in the correct bin.
- Wash the car on a lawn or shingle driveway where the soap and dirt soak into the grass and soil. If you can’t do this, suggest to your parents or guardians to take the car to a car wash next time they visit a service station.
- Brush your driveway clean, never wash it where the water will end up on the road and in the stormwater drain.
- Don’t use cleaners and fertilizers around the home where they can be washed into the stormwater when it rains.
Together we can make a difference. The fish will love us for it!
