All communities conduct activities that influence water quality. Some activities, such as hotspot facility management, construction project management and street repair and maintenance can negatively impact water quality, while others, such as street sweeping, storm drain maintenance and employee training, can help improve it. By reducing the influence of the operations that negatively impact water quality and increasing the influence those that help improve it, a municipal pollution prevention/good housekeeping practices can help control and reduce stormwater pollution and address local subwatershed restoration goals and objectives. Since the nature, scope and distribution of municipal operations vary greatly from one community to the next, there is no one size fits all approach to pollution prevention/good housekeeping. Every community needs to develop its own pollution prevention/good housekeeping program.
