Why?  

Did you know that it is unlawful to leave your pet's waste in our city's parks? (Code of the City of Colorado Springs 2001, as amended 9.9.301) Pet waste is a huge problem in our city. Not only is it a nuisance, but it can also carry viruses and bacteria that are extremely harmful to humans and animals in our watershed. In addition to the risk of diseases, the organic matter and nutrients contained in pet waste can degrade our water quality. YOU can make a difference! Please help educate our citizens on the importance of cleaning up pet waste.
