What We Do

 

Our program was created to manage non-point source pollution to beautiful Lake Pend Oreille.   However, our materials and resources are not just lake specific, they also apply to rivers, streams, and groundwater. 

 

Our goal is to provide one stop resources for the public  regardng pollution prevention and land use regulations in Bonner County. 

 

Non-Point Source Pollution one of the biggest threats to our waterways. It is essentially pollution that you can't see or track. . Nonpoint source pollution comes from leaking septic systems, oil and fuel spills, pet waste, pesticides, herbicides, fertilizer, road salt, bacteria, sediment, and any other contaminants that end up on the ground naturally or from human activity. Rainwater and snowmelt pick up these contaminants as it washes over yards, sidewalks, driveways, roads, parking lots, and fields and deposits them into waterways.
