North Georgia "Here's the Scoop on Pet Waste" Contest


The Metropolitan North Georgia Water Planning District is pleased to announce the 2015 High School Video Contest. Ninth, tenth, eleventh and twelfth grade students that attend schools in Bartow, Cherokee, Clayton, Cobb, Coweta, DeKalb, Douglas, Fayette, Forsyth, Fulton, Gwinnett, Hall, Henry, Paulding and Rockdale counties are encouraged to participate. Students are asked to create a 30-60 second water education video public service announcement focused on this year's topic, "Here's the Scoop on Pet Waste."

Pet waste can create a health hazard for people and can “doo” a lot of damage to the environment. There are approximately 70 million dogs in the United States. The average dog produces three quarters of a pound of waste a day. That means our pets generate about 10 million tons of dog poop a year! The poop left on sidewalks and lawns is both unpleasant and a nuisance. But it can become an even bigger problem when stormwater carries it into nearby rivers, lakes and streams.

Here’s the Scoop on Pet Waste!

There are approximately 70 million dogs in the United States.

The average dog produces three quarters of a pound of waste a day.

That means our pets generate about 10 million tons of dog poop a year! The poop left on sidewalks and lawns is both unpleasant and a nuisance. But it can become an even bigger problem when stormwater carries it into nearby rivers, lakes and streams. It can create a health hazard for people and can “doo” a lot of damage to the environment.

Did you know:

» A single gram of pet waste contains an average of 23 million fecal coliform bacteria, some of which cause diseases in humans. » Waters that contain high levels of bacteria and other pathogens from animal waste are unfit for human contact.

» As pet waste decays, it uses up oxygen that fish and aquatic life need.

» Pet waste contains nutrients that can cause excessive algae growth in a river or lake, upsetting the natural balance. It all begins with you. Picking up after your pet helps keep our rivers, lakes and streams healthy for recreation and protects human health and the plants and animals that depend on clean water.

Scoop that poop every time.

Place it in a plastic bag and TOSS it in the trash.
