“It’s important for citizens, landscapers, and everyone to remember that gutter flow carries everything in its path into the Truckee River,” advises Lynell Garfield-Qualls, City of Reno Hydrologist. “This includes fertilizers from our lawns, pesticides, pet waste, oils, and fallen fruit and leaves. We need to keep polluted runoff out of the storm drain system.”
