Storm Drain Pollution: Spills Come From More than Just Drilling

As the crisis in the Gulf continues to highlight the devastating environmental effects of offshore drilling on the ocean, we must be equally aware of our own impact on our oceans and waterways. Where else does pollution come from?  An article in The USA Today compares land-based spills, to natural seepage, to the Deepwater Horizon disaster.

How can we each help? 

Everyday water flows down driveways and streets picking up pollutants along the way. Of these pollutants, lawn fertilizers, soaps, cleaning products, grease, and oil pose a particularly large threat due to their wide spread usage. Moreover, their improper disposal can lead to fines and restrictions. Here at Impact Absorbents we are dedicated to the environment and offer a wide variety of products with Mother Nature in mind. Protect drains and waterways, avoid costly citations, and prevent stop work orders with X-Straw Booms, Jute Netting, Silt Fencing, Ultra Drain Guards, and Gravel Bags.
