Do you use the waters of the State for recreational activities such as swimming, boating, fishing, or other water sports? If you enjoy these water sports and you believe it is important to have clean water in our lakes, rivers and streams, then you will be interested in what your community is doing to address water quality in this region. Have you ever dumped antifreeze or oil down the drain in your street, or dumped lawn clippings into the drain in your back yard? Did you know those drains and storm sewer systems go directly to the rivers in our area? Those drainage systems do not receive any treatment. Under new federal regulations your community must keep its rainwater (stormwater?) discharges from the storm water drainage systems as clean as possible. You can help in this endeavor. In the future we will be educating everyone in the Saginaw Area on how you can help keep our rivers and lakes cleaner. There will be a series of short articles during the next year that will provide you with information that will help keep our water resources clean. We may also ask you to complete and return simple surveys to help us develop programs to keep our storm water clean. The Saginaw Area Storm Water Authority (SASWA) cannot succeed without your help. If you want to learn more about why keeping our storm water clean is important read on.
