Broyhill Park - Stormwater
From: Broyhill Park Civic Association
To: All Broyhill Park Residents:
This flyer is being sent to all civic and homeowner associations at the request of Fairfax County's Stormwater Planning Division as part of an effort to reduce stormwater drain pollution. Rain that falls onto hard surfaces is carried by runoff into the storm drains, which lead directly to our local streams, rivers, and ultimately to the Chesapeake Bay. Many common sources of water pollution come from residential areas. These include swimming pool discharges, car washing and maintenance, excessive animal waste, improper yard waste disposal, unsecured garbage and trash, improper pesticide application, and improper disposal of construction materials and paint. Please help to improve local surface water quality by working to reduce these sources of water pollution.
