    The Shocking Truth About Your Dog’s Poop

    Dog Poop. It’s a serious problem.

    Here’s Why….

    Because it contains disease-causing bacteria that can make people sick. Even
    worse is the knowledge that dog waste may be polluting our drinking water, local swimming areas, and favorite fishing spots.

    WRWA recently sent all Westport residents a flyer called “The Shocking Truth About Your Dog’s Poop”. This flyer’s production was made possible by the Massachusetts Environmental Trust. To download a copy of the flyer click the image below.

    WRWA Shocking Truth

    You can make a difference for clean water in your town. Pick up after your pooch. Remind your neighbors to pick up after theirs. Your dog can’t help it. But you can. It’s easy.
