Swimming pool water often looks clean, but can contain chemicals, like chlorine, algae and bacteria that can kill fish and plants that our creeks need to be healthy. Here is how to safely drain your pool to protect our wildlife:
1. Pump the pool water into the public sewer system through your sanitary sewer clean-out.
2. If you don’t have a sewer clean-out, then, take your time and let the water drain SLOWLY into a grassy area far away from the street and any drainage channels or creeks.
DO NOT drain pool water to the street or dump it into a creek or drainage channel. It’s not good for the environment, and it is also ILLEGAL!
Be Stormwater Savvy and protect our natural resources.
