City of Largo, Florida
Our stormwater system carries these pollutants directly to Tampa Bay and the Gulf. These are the same bodies of water where we swim, fish, and play.
Why Is Stormwater Important?
Polluted stormwater degrades water quality and threatens the health of fish and other aquatic life.
Excessive nutrients from fertilizers promote algae growth. Bacteria, viruses, and parasites from pet waste can threaten human health. Hazardous substances and leaking automotive fluids can be toxic to marine life.
How Can We Improve Water Quality?
By practicing eco-friendly habits, Largo residents can help improve water quality:
Only Rain Down the Drain
While blowing grass clippings or raking leaves into the road, ditch, or storm drain may appear to be a harmless activity, this debris contributes to clogging the stormwater system, street flooding and creates downstream water quality issues. Bag or mulch leaves and grass, and let only rain go down the drain.
