A reminder from Board of Health on Pet Waste:
Animal waste from pets can pollute our waters. It is required that animal solid waste be immediately and properly disposed of in order to prevent high concentrations of nutrients, bacteria and disease causing micro-organisms from entering our rivers, lakes and even drinking water. When walking your pet, please follow our ordinance by picking up waste, wrapping it and disposing into the trash or unwrapped flushing it down the toilet.
