*ATTENTION ELKRIDGE DOG OWNERS*
We are conducting a new pilot program in Elkridge focusing on pet waste in backyards and in public spaces. Although our current efforts are focusing on Elkridge and the Deep Run watershed, we hope to eventually expand this campaign to other areas of Howard County.
It’s time to Doo Your Duty!
Be sure to always pick up after your #PatapscoPup.
Why should you Doo Your Duty?
Pet waste is unsightly and smelly, but even worse, it
is an environmental pollutant. Pet waste contains
excess nutrients and carries bacteria, viruses and
parasites that threaten the health of humans,
wildlife, and the local ecosystem. One quick rain
shower can easily transfer waste from the ground
to our waterways, including Deep Run and the
Patapsco River. By properly picking up after your
#PatapscoPup and making sure the waste gets in a
trash can, you are removing harmful nutrients and
bacteria from our yards, trails, parks, and local
