SWEEPING SAVES OUR STREAMS

Ever notice how the water turns to chocolate milk after it rains? This sediment comes from both natural and human caused sources. It can clog fish gills, impact spawning, raise water temperature, reduce plant growth and lower visibility. Some of the human caused sources include roads and construction sites. Not only that, but road sediment includes additional pollutants from tire, brake and other vehicle wear. What if we could stop some of those pollutants and sediments from entering the streams and waterways? That’d be great. Let’s do it.  

What We're Doing

We think that The Stream Machine is just plain cool. It is going to catch people’s eyes and when we have their eyes we have their attention. We’re also running Instagram campaigns to give away Stream Machine swag and teach erosion best management practices.

We’ll be working with local non-profits to support access to sustainable resources now and into the future. We’ll be donating both time and cash.

It’s nice when the for profit work you do has positive impact on the community around you. We’re lucky enough to be in that boat. So, by simply getting after it day in and day out, we’re doing what we can to help improve and create sustainable water quality.

What yOu Can Do

Interact On INsta

Instagram is the place where we will spread awareness. It is vital for the community to understand how important implementing best management practices is to the health of our streams.

Donate

We will be making donations to several local organizations. Be sure to checkout their websites and participate in stream cleanups.

Sweep Your Lot

If you live in an HOA, manage a parking lot, or own a business add sweeping to your maintenance routine. It is a low cost service that improves the health of the community and extends the life of your storm water system.

Why? Here, We Fish.

What’s more fun than mixing something that you love with something that you do? Well, we try to do that here at YPS. The Sweeping Saves Our Streams initiative is here to merge our work with our play. It injects additional fun and meaning into the work that we do and reminds us that one reason we work is for the freedom to enjoy the great outdoors! We know this work is important and we’re dedicated to it. We also know that sometimes the most important task that we can have for the day is to spend some time on the water.
