- Stormwater carries pet waste and other pollutants directly into waterways.
- Pet waste can release ammonia into the water which can kill fish and other aquatic life. At the same time, it can stimulate excessive growth of algae and other aquatic weeds.
- lllegal to send to landfills in many states.
- The typical dog produces 274 pounds of waste each year, according to the Natural Resources Conservation Service.
