Dog owners can help prevent contamination of local waterways, parkland, and beaches by picking up after their dogs. Dog waste should be placed in a proper trash receptacle. 

Never throw rubbish into the stormwater grates in the street. These catch basins are for stormwater. During rainy weather, dog waste that is not scooped up is carried in stormwater runoff to catch basins. Catch basins connect to Lebanon’s storm drain system that discharges to the Mascoma River as well as Stoney Brook, Great Brook and other waterways. 

Dog waste pollutes our parks and other grounds in addition to being unpleasant and unhealthy for residents, and aquatic life.  Please help by picking up after your pet and disposing of the waste properly.
