The Town of Chesterton currently incorporates several elements of pollution prevention and good housekeeping that are designed to minimize impacts to our local waterways from municipal operations:
- Annual Storm Water Pollution Prevention and Emergency Spill Response training for municipal employees.
- Minimization of pesticide and fertilizer application and use.
- Periodic pavement sweeping at municipal facilities.
- Pollution prevention at all municipal facilities including secondary storage containment, proper waste management, and standard operating procedures for spill prevention and control.
