Pet Waste: A major contributor to pollution in the Nanticoke

In 2017, The NWA launched a pet waste campaign in Sussex County, DE to highlight the importance of picking up after your pet.


It’s 2019 and we’ve just purchased a whole lot of dog waste bags and leash attachments. We’re giving them away for free to dog owners in the Nanticoke River watershed. Find us at local environmental events during the spring, summer, and fall for your change to pick one up! 




When it rains, pet waste is washed into the local creek, stream, or river, increasing nutrients, bacteria, and diseases present. Lets work together to make the environment healthier and save the Nanticoke River and Chesapeake Bay!
