The City of Bloomington works to maintain and improve the health and quality of our surface waters - lakes, ponds, wetlands and streams.

Bloomington is an urban ecosystem and our surface waters, particularly ponds, are under a lot of stress.

There are several ways to be Water Wise and it starts by understanding the effect of the urban environment on water quality and what you can do to help.

Many of the impacts on water quality come from the actions and activities of those living, working, and recreating in the area.
