TIPS ON PROTECTING OUR WATER RESOURCES
Pollution on streets, parking lots and lawns is washed by rain into storm drains then directly to our drinking water supplies and the ocean and lakes our children play in. By sharing the responsibility and making small, easy changes in our daily lives, we can keep common pollutants out of storm water. As a resident, business, or other member of the Fairview community, it is imperative to know these easy things you can do everyday to protect our water.
- Pick up and properly dispose of pet waste dropped on public or other people’s property
- Place litter in trash receptacles, recycle and participate in community cleanups
- Do not spill, dump or dispone of domestic sewage, non-contact cooling water, process waste water, or other waste materials to the municipal storm sewer system (other than storm water)
- Do not feed wildlife in any public park or on any other property owned or operated by the Borough of Fairview, excluding confined wildlife
- Cover dumpsters and other refuse containers that are outdoors or exposed to storm water at all times
- Do not authorize the repaving, repairing, resurfacing, reconstructing or altering of any surface that is in direct contact with an existing storm drain inlet on your property unless the storm drain inlet either already meets the design standards to control passage of solid and floatable materials or is retrofitted or replaced to meet the standards (NJDOT bicycle safe grate or approved equal).
All of the above items are addressed in our ordinances in the “Code of the Borough of Fairview” and can be found on the Borough of Fairview website at: www.fairvewborough.com
Thank you for your help in protecting our community’s water!!
Snow is to be removed from sidewalk within 12 hours of daylight after the snow has stopped falling. Snow is NOT to be thrown into the street.
To expedite the removal of snow from our streets, please observe the following suggestions:
1. Try to get all of your vehicles off the street to make it easier for the plows to clear the streets
2. Shovel snow onto your lawn rather than into the street
