Description People love their pets, but a by-product of pet ownership is pet waste, which is getting into urban and suburban streams. Snohomish County, in Washington State, used a scientific approach to their pet waste challenge and created a program to help local governments change public knowledge and behaviors to help keep pet waste out of local streams.
The mission of the Department of Ecology is to protect, preserve, and enhance Washington’s environment. To help us meet that goal, please consider the environment before you print or request a copy.
