What's the Scoop on Poop?

Dog feces is not only unsightly, but it can also contaminate storm water run‐off, ending up in our reservoirs, creeks, and other water supplies. Feces release harmful amounts of nitrogen fertlizer to the soil, which may encourage the spread of noxious weeds.
On or off‐leash, owners must scoop the poop!
