Pet Waste: A major contributor to pollution in the Nanticoke

The NWA launched a pet waste campaign in Sussex County, DE to highlight the importance of picking up after your pet.  When it rains, pet waste is washed into the local creek, stream, or river, increasing nutrients, bacteria, and diseases present.  For more information and pet owner tips please read our brochure below:
