Thank you to the nearly 250 Springfield residents who entered their dogs in the contest for the 2020 Canines for Clean Water Calendar! The winning dogs have been selected, and we are now putting the calendar together. We will announce in November when the free Canines for Clean Water Calendars are ready.
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, causes contamination. Community members are asked to pledge to keep our local waterways clean by always “scooping the poop.”
