Leaf Season is Here - Pollution Prevention is Up to You!

City staff is helping to raise awareness of protecting our waterways by marking stormdrain inlets. Stormdrains carry rainwater to the nearest body of water. Everything that enters a stormdrain flows directly into our creeks, lakes, Tampa Bay and the Gulf of Mexico. It is illegal to dump leaves or other yard waste, motor oil, trash, chlorinated pool water, paint or any other pollutants into the street, stormdrains or waterways. When stormdrains get clogged with yard waste or debris, water can flood streets and homes. For more information about protecting natural floodplains or to report a violation, visit www.pinellascounty.org/watershed or call the stormwater hotline at (727) 464-4425, 24-hour hotline at (727) 464-5060 or call The City of Tarpon Springs, Stormwater Division at (727) 942-5606. Thank you for your support! * Certain times of the year (usually late December to March) our beautiful trees drop their leaves. It is not only illegal, but imperative that we, as homeowners bag our fallen leaves and dispose of them properly, either at an approved landfill or through your trash pick-up provider. Not disposing of leafs and yardwaste properly will result in written notice, code enforcement and possible fines per City Ordinance: § 8-23.

Fertilizer Usage:

Pinellas County law bans the sale and use of any lawn or landscape fertilizer with nitrogen or phosphorous from June 1 to September 30. Learn more at the Pinellas County website or download the i nformational flyer. Incorrect use of fertilizer and poor landscape debris management can allow nutrients to leach into the groundwater and wash into storm drains that flow to lakes, streams and bays. When irrigating with Reclaimed Water, fertilizer usage should be decreased due to nutrients found in reclaimed water. Learn more . This video was produced through a grant from the Tampa Bay Regional Planning Council, Stormwater Education Committee. Excess nutrients in our waterways can cause harmful algae blooms, which lower oxygen levels and lead to fish kills. You can help protect our waters from “The Beast”!
