Urban Runoff Posters

lawn fertilizer poster

Urban and suburban sources of polluted runoff are serious issues facing Lake Champlain. However, getting this message across doesn’t have to be dull! This poster series uses humorous images to illustrate four common sources of polluted runoff: excess phosphorus from fertilizers; leaking oil from cars; pet waste; and runoff from washing cars. The posters are intended for municipalities, schools, business, not-for-profits, and individuals interested in spreading the word about pollution prevention.

How to Order

How to Adapt These Posters to Your Watershed

The Lake Champlain Basin Program thanks the Washington State Department of Ecology, King County and the cities of Bellevue, Seattle and Tacoma for letting the LCBP adapt the poster designs to the Lake Champlain Basin. The posters are available for use in other watersheds as well. For more information visit the Puget Sound Action Team website. Or, contact the Washington State Department of Ecology by e-mailing mknackstedt@psat.wa.gov or calling (360) 407-7336.
