Small changes makes a big difference

We’re doing a four-part mini-series on stormwater: what is it? Why should residents care? What is the City doing to help reduce the risk of flooding and erosion in Vaughan? What can residents do to help? We’ll cover those questions here.

The City of Vaughan’s stormwater management program supports flood protection, maintains water quality and helps in climate change mitigation if infrastructure is well maintained. To learn more, visit vaughan.ca/stormwater.

Here is the final post of this series:

Small changes makes a big difference:

  • Clean up litter
  • Use less fertilizers
  • Allow native plants and trees to grow near creeks and streams
  • Dispose of toxic products at local household hazardous waste centres
