Welcome to Clear Choices Clean Water - Greater Toledo Lake Erie

Clear Choices, Clean Water - Greater Toledo Lake Erie is a campaign to increase awareness about choices we make and the impact we have on our streams and lakes. Water friendly practices such as using phosphorus-free fertilizer, landscaping with native plants, managing yard and pet wastes, and volunteering to clean up our waterways help make clear clean water available to us. Even small actions can have a big impact on our waterways, so the choice is clear: take a pledge for clean water today!

Only one dog can produce up to 205lbs of waste each year. Unfortunately, it's not always common for owners to clean up after their pups. If not disposed of properly, this waste can contain up to 1,638,000,000,000 fecal coliform bacteria YEARLY for a SINGLE DOG. By letting this waste sit around, we are exposing the environment, ourselves, our families, and our friends and neighbors to harmful bacteria and diseases. Learn more about pet poo and what you can do by visiting our Pet and Other Poo page. Don't forget to take a pledge to show you want to make a difference in your neighborhood!
