If You're In, You're Connected


Anything and everything that washes off your yard flows untreated to Phillippi Creek, from street to ditch to creek then to the bay.  A little bit from a lot of yards adds up!

You Can Help

Chemicals, pet waste, fertilizers and trash flow into the creek with every rain. Be the solution, not the pollution!


Pick up litter and keep lids on trash cans.


Never dump trash into waterways.



Limit use of poisons like herbicides and insecticides in your yard.

Don’t wash paint, oil or detergents into the street.


Pick up pet waste. It’s loaded with bacteria and parasites.

Fix cracked and leaky sewer pipes and septic tanks.



Skip the fertilizer June 1 – Sept 30 when summer rains wash fertilizers into waterways.


Sweep clippings back into your lawn and never dump into backyard canals.

So, Are You In?

Join us and hundreds of neighbors to protect Phillippi Creek waters and wildlife for all to enjoy.
