More Clean Water, Less Pollution

We care about our environment. Help protect Merrill’s natural resources by keeping our lakes and rivers clean.

Stormwater runoff carries pollutants, such as dirt, oil, chemicals and fertilizers, directly into streams and rivers, where they harm water quality, fish, wildlife populations, kill native vegetation, and make recreational areas unsafe and unpleasant. When it rains or snow melts, water that doesn’t soak into the ground runs off into rivers and lakes. Read more and find out how you can make a difference.
