• Use phosphorus free fertilizers unless fertilizing a brand new lawn• Use fertilizer only to package instructions and sweep up any excess from walks and driveways
• Check cars for leaks and have them repaired promptly• Use a biodegradable soap when washing your car and wash on a vegetated area
• Have your septic system inspected every 3-5 years
