Many people may not realize that pet waste left on the ground can get washed into storm drains, which lead directly to our local streams and rivers. Pet waste contains bacteria and parasitic organisms that, when washed into local waterways, can contaminate streams and rivers. Take the Canines for Clean Water pledge to keep our local waterways clean by always “scooping the poop.” Questions? Email us at WaterResources@springfield-or.gov
Every year the City of Springfield creates the popular Canines for Clean Water Calendar, featuring local Springfield dogs. The theme of the 2019 calendar is “Rescue the River” and features adopted dogs. Unfortunately, copies of the 2019 calendars have run out! Stay tuned for the Canines for Clean Water Calendar contest in the spring of 2019, to enter your dog for a chance to be featured in next year’s calendar.
