“Save the River-Save the Hills” whole-heartedly endorses the ideas that Peter Harris offered in his letter to the editor, “A better way to achieve a healthy lawn,” (March 24). Everyone lives in a watershed and everything you do to your lawn, house or car may have an impact to the water quality of the stormwater that runs off your property. Stormwater runs directly into a waterbody, such as the Niantic River and its tributaries, unfiltered and untreated. If you would not want to swim in it, do not use it on your property and certainly do not pour it down a storm drain! Also, pick up dog feces and wash your car at a carwash where water is recycled. Little things you do every day can make a difference for the water quality in the watershed you live in and ultimately, the Long Island Sound.”
