Just wanted to remind everyone that homeowners need to keep the sewers out in front of their homes clear of leaf and garbage debris.  All that goes down into the sewer will eventually make its way into the brooks and the nearby lake.  Even cigarette butts do their damage to the environment.

As stated in  Positive News:  “What starts out as grimy street litter eventually finds its way into storm drains…. Cigarette filters are made of a plastic called cellulose acetate that doesn’t biodegrade. Birds and fish eat them and eventually starve to death because their stomachs are full of plastic. To make matters worse, one unfiltered cigarette butt has the toxicity to kill half of the fish in a one-liter container of water, according to a recent study by San Diego State University.”
