Non-point source pollution (the runoff from our yards and streets) has been identified as one of the major sources of pollution to Galveston Bay. Estimates indicate that homeowners apply up to 20 times the recommended rate of fertilizers and pesticides. The Galveston Bay Yards & Neighbors Program is designed to reduce the amount of non-point source pollution by introducing Bay Friendly home and lawn care practices to homeowners.
