IS YOUR HOME OR BUSINESS A BAY STAR?

We live in a beautiful region surrounded by water. It impacts everything from the food we eat to the fun we have as well as our economic livelihood. Our daily actions have a lasting impact and it's up to us to protect and restore our waterways. It takes a community of individuals making small changes to make a difference. Getting involved in the Bay Star programs is one way you can be part of the effort to protect our region's most defining natural resource, water.

What’s the good, green word?

Fall has officially fallen! What else has fallen? ALL. THOSE. LEAVES. Is your lawn covered with a nice crunchy blanket of leaves? What do you do?

Don’t blow it.

Seriously, don’t blow those leaves into the street. In fact, don’t sweep or rake them into the street either. They’ll make their way into the storm drains, and create all kinds of trouble. Mulch or bag your leaves and help keep your lawn—and our waterways—healthy.

Share this and spread the word. (Not the leaves!)

As we go about our business, we want to remind you not to take the water you use every day for granted. The 6,500 miles of water distribution pipeline and 5,800 miles of sanitary sewer lines throughout Hampton Roads—and the dedicated water workers who maintain them—keep clean water flowing to our homes and businesses.

Without them, we couldn’t continue to:
💧 Wash our hands
💧 Wash our dishes
💧 Wash our clothes
💧 Take a shower
💧 Water the garden
💧 Make coffee
💧 Put out fires
💧 Play in the sprinkler
💧 And LOTS more...

Hoist a glass of wonderful tap water and toast our public water system!
