Using herbicides to treat weeds creates pollution for streams, rivers, and watersheds. Stormwater runoff can carry herbicides into our water system and pollute habitat for fish and wildlife. Herbicides can also pose health risks for family members and pets. By understanding ways to control weeds without herbicides, you can keep your yard weed-free and watershed-friendly!
