Stream Smart is a campaign to spread the word about water quality in the Bear Creek valley. Specifically, the choices that community members can make to limit the amount of pollutants ending up directly in the creek. Everyday decisions, such as choosing to use phosphorus-free fertilizer, managing yard, livestock, and pet wastes, upgrading irrigation systems, and properly maintaining septic systems can protect our water quality.
Take the Pledge!
The Stream Smart Pledge gives families, businesses and municipalities a chance to prevent water pollution by making simple changes around the house and by places of business. The Pledge is a volunteer program that encourages watershed residents to choose to protect the water quality in Bear Creek.
