Clean Water Heritage Program
The Clean Water Heritage Program was established to equip citizens to make better decisions about actions that affect water quality, and informing them about services provided by the County’s Stormwater Program.
Together we can protect and restore our Clean Water Heritage.
Rain gardens, when properly designed, constructed, and maintained, are striking landscape features that provide functionality as well as aesthetic pleasure.
Stormwater runoff can have negative effects on water quality in James City County. Excessive nutrients and sediment are two of the greatest pollutants impacting the Chesapeake Bay.
Be Septic Smart
Protect your home investment and avoid costly replacement by doing your part. Have your septic tank inspected, don't strain your drain and protect your drain field.
Scoop The Poop
Why should you pick up your pet’s waste? Pet waste contains nutrients that can cause weeds and algae to grow more rapidly which greatly impacts the health of our waterways.
