Every time it rains, pet waste that is not picked up is washed into storm drains and directly into the James River without being treated. Dog waste is a source of e. coli, giardia, salmonella, roundworms and hookworms. These pollutants are harmful to humans, the James River and the Chesapeake Bay.
Pick up dog waste, whether it’s in your yard or at the park or on the sidewalks. Protect the James River and Pick Up the Poop – Don’t Pollute.
Send photographs of you and your dog to utilitybuddy at richmondgov.com with the sign I Pick Up After [Dog’s Name] and we’ll share them on our Twitter and Facebook pages.
