Help Keep Your CSD Parks and Water – Pristine
The Cosumnes Community Services District (CSD) has been authorized by the California Water Quality Control Board and the federal government to conduct a storm water pollution prevention program at its properties and facilities in southern Sacramento County, including the 80 parks it operates in Elk Grove.
THE GOAL: The CSD’s goal is to reduce or eliminate pollutant storm water.
HOW YOU CAN HELP:
- Don’t Litter – Litter like plastic bottles, fast food wrappers and cups tossed on the ground in your parks can carry germs and bacteria. If they end up in our storm drains, they pollute our waterways.
- Report Illegal Dumping – If you see someone dumping trash in one of your CSD parks, or an undeveloped site of a future CSD park, immediately call our 24-hour maintenance hotline at (916) 405-5688.
- Pick Up After Your Pet – Pet waste contains disease-carrying bacteria that can pollute our drinking water. When you’re in a CSD park, on a CSD trail or along a CSD roadside corridor, pick up after your pet and remind others to do the same.
- Put Your Butt in the Trash – If you’re a smoker, always put your extinguished cigarette butts in the trash. Left on the ground, they can end up in our rivers and lakes.
- Mind The Drains – Pay attention to what goes into the storm drains in and around our CSD parks, trails and corridors. If it’s down the drain, it’s in the environment.
