Did You Know?

One gallon of used motor oil poured down a storm drain can create a four acre oil slick; contaminate up to one million gallons of water; and spread as far as 100 miles downstream from where the storm drain discharges into the nearest river or stream.  This oil poisons the water, coats vegetation and wildlife, and causes illness and death.
