Did you know that most of the storm drains in Seattle empty directly into the nearest body of water? That means when it rains, anything we’ve left on the ground—drips from auto leaks, yard chemicals, pet poop—makes its way to local waters like Lake Washington and Lake Union, and eventually into Puget Sound.
The bad news: Toxic materials that drain into our local waters have harmful effects on our environment and can hurt the health of fish, wildlife, and people.
The good news: you can help! By pledging to do things like taking your car to a commercial carwash, picking up after your pets, and vehicle leaks, you can help reduce the amount of pollutants that drain into Seattle’s waterways.
Bonus: For taking the pledge, you’ll receive a FREE Chinook Book mobile coupon access code!*
