Pollution Prevention

Keeping Your Water Clean By Preventing Pollution

Preventing pollution from entering streams in the first place is the only sure way of maintaining good water quality and habitat for aquatic life. Storm drains lead directly to our streams, so most of the pollution entering our streams comes from Rockville residents and businesses. Everyone can help prevent pollution and keep our water clean.
