We will be discussing what storm water <br /> pollution prevention means for you and how you can help local government meet their <br /> requirements and prevent storm water pollution. Please call the St. Joseph County S WCD office <br /> to reserve your spot at (574) 291-7444 ext. 3. <br /> With the approach of Spring, it is the perfect time to review the many things we can do, in <br /> our day to day lives, to improve the water quality of our local water resource, the St. Joseph <br /> River. Storm water discharges, if uncontrolled, allow hazardous wastes such as pesticides, motor <br /> oil, anti-freeze, animal waste, and other sources of pollution to have a profound, negative effect <br /> on our water quality. <br /> -30- <br />
