Help the Town of Ashland in our continuous efforts to protect our streams, local waterways, and the Chesapeake Bay with these winter stormwater tips!
- As you're winterizing your vehicles, make sure to check for and fix fluid leaks. Even a small amount of oil that drips on the pavement can pollute thousands of gallons of water.
- Properly dispose of antifreeze and never dump it on the ground or down a storm drain.
- Instead of using hard de-icing products in the event of freezing precipitation and snow, choose all-natural ingredients over rock salt. Ask your local hardware store which products are eco-friendly and use sparingly.
- Do not apply any anti-icing or deicing agent containing urea or other forms of nitrogen or phosphorus.
Thank you for your care and concern for the environment!
