Clark County has almost 110,000 dogs, of all shapes and sizes, and their poop adds up about 15,000 tons per year. Pet waste left on the ground can be washed into storm drains that lead directly to our streams and wetlands. This waste carries harmful bacteria which can affect the health of aquatic wildlife, ourselves and our children.
Buddy's clean water tip
Taking a dip in your nearest lake, river, or stream is a fun summer activity. Help keep these places clean and safe for swimming and aquatic life, by scooping the poop, bagging it, and throwing it in the trash!
