For Homeowners

The GLRC has developed a variety of public education materials for municipalities to use in their community as well as for the public to view here. Please take some time to look at the GLRC materials and learn about watershed management and how you and your community can help reduce pollution in our local waterways.

We are part of the effort to keep our water clean; you can learn more about your water quality and Pollution Isn’t Pretty here.
