Voted 2020 Best PSA/Commercial in the Northland by The Reader.
The Longest Yard PSA
It may not look like it, but your property is beachfront. At least, it is every time it rains. When it rains or snows, our streets & sidewalks behave like streams. They carry anything in their path (including yard waste, litter, chemicals, etc.) right on down to Lake Superior. Stormwater is not treated before it flows to our water sources.
Smart Salting PSA
Watch to learn how to use deicing salt in a way that reduces water pollution, while maintaining safety. The salt we apply each winter dissolves & disappears, but doesn't go away. Rather, it concentrates in freshwater lakes, streams, wetlands, & rivers. This salt is toxic to aquatic life!
Smart Salting Steps PSA - 2018
This Smart Salting PSA explains the impacts of applying salt. Too much salt can hurt your pets, your car, your wallet, & especially the environment. The salt we apply each winter dissolves & disappears, but doesn't go away. Rather, it concentrates in freshwater lakes, streams, wetlands, & rivers. This salt is toxic to aquatic life, & concentrations are on the rise.
Stormwater Bobbers PSA
Follow the stormwater bobbers as they take the path that any litter on the street would: down the storm drain and right into nearby lakes and streams. Stormwater is NOT treated before it joins waterways. Please help us keep our region's vital water sources pollution free by preventing stormwater pollution.
Not Just A Ditch PSA
This stormwater PSA explains how roadside ditches play an important part of the urban water cycle, and why it is crucial to keep them litter and pollution free. Maybe you've never noticed roadside ditches for what they are; they are just ditches after all, right? Wrong! Watch to learn more!
Did you know that yard debris in the street will end up polluting our streams? Please compost yard debris in your home compost pile, or bring to your local yard waste center. Never rake yard debris into the street! You can make a difference by ensuring our waterways stay clean and beautiful. Check out this PSA to learn more!
An oldie but a goodie. 🐟 Protect our watershed; pease dispose of sediments properly, instead of sweeping it into the street. Otherwise, you're clogging up our lakes & streams with sediment & other gunk! You can make a difference by ensuring our waterways stay clean and beautiful. Check out this PSA to learn more!
