Did you know that you can help protect Santee's water quality by using water more efficiently and implementing pollution prevention practices at home? By implementing best management practices (BMPs), such as covering trash bins to prevent rain contact and runoff, adjusting sprinklers to eliminate over-irrigation, sweeping patios, driveways, and sidewalks, and picking up after pets, we can all contribute to protecting water quality.
