What's the Problem?
Clean rivers, streams, and lakes are an important part of life in the Flathead Valley. From drinking water, recreation, and aquatic life, clean water provides many benefits.
When excess fertilizers or pesticides are applied to lawns and gardens, rain or overwatering can cause the fertilizers or pesticides to runoff onto streets and into storm drains. The stormwater system pipes flow to local rivers and streams and dump this polluted water into them without any treatment.
