    Tips From "Be Water Wise" 
    California’s water situation remains serious, so here’s a few suggestions on how you and your family can help save water and really make a difference!
    Indoors - What you can do: 
    • Turn off the water when you brush your teeth
    • Shorten your showers by one or two minutes
    • Fix leaky faucets 
    • Wash only full loads of laundry
    • Talk to your family and friends about saving water. If everyone does a little, we all benefit a lot.

    Outdoors - What you can do: 
    • Water yard before 8:00 am to reduce evaporation 
    • Install a smart sprinkler controller 
    • Use a broom to clean off driveways/sidewalks
    • Regularly check your sprinkler system for leaks 
    • Considering mulch! You may save hundreds of gallons a year by using organic mulch around plants to reduce evaporation

    WATER POLLUTION PREVENTION
      Water Pollution: Be a Part of The Solution
      Pet waste, litter, fertilizers and other pollutants on our streets and sidewalks can be washed into the gutter by water from rain, sprinklers, or hoses. This pollution flows through the storm drain system and directly into the ocean. We can all help reduce this water pollution by remembering: 
      • To not litter (every little piece counts)
      • To pick up and properly dispose of our pet’s waste
      • To clean our driveway and sidewalk with a broom rather than a hose
      • To buy household and garden products that are environmentally safe
      • To properly dispose of used oil, antifreeze, paints, solvents, cleaners, pesticides, chemicals and fertilizers at a household hazardous materials collection site (call 1-888-CLEANLA)
      • To report any illegal dumping of the items listed above


      Pet Owners Must Pick Up After Their Pets!
      Animal waste contains disease-causing pathogens and harmful chemicals and nutrients, that when left on the ground, wash down storm drains and contaminate local waterways and beaches. Not picking up after your pet is not only discourteous, it is unhealthy for the entire community! 

      The City of Walnut would like remind pet owners to be courteous and pick up after your pet while walking your dog or animal on City sidewalks, trails, parks or other open spaces. There is an Animal Nuisance Ordinance in Los Angeles County Code (Title 10 Animals, Chapter 10.40.060, B.) which requires that owners pick up and properly dispose of their pet’s waste from all public spaces and walking areas for sanitary and health reasons. 

      To help promote clean up, the City has installed pet waste stations all City parks. These stations provide not only Zero-Waste biodegradable bags with which to pick up your pet’s waste, they also provide a sealed container in which to dispose of the waste.
