Do my part to protect Duluth’s streams, the St. Louis River, and Lake Superior
Protecting Duluth’s stormwater is easy. Think of your curb and gutter as lakeshore property- remember that anything on the street will wash down the storm drain which runs straight into our local streams and then Lake Superior. Don’t blow your leaves and grass clippings into the street. Sweep up road salt and sand in the spring. Pick up pet droppings. Wash your car at a car wash or on the lawn where the soapy water can soak into the ground, not the driveway where the water will flow into the storm sewer. Don’t litter- much of that trash ends up in our lakes and streams.
