Horse manure left on the ground contributes to urban runoff pollution. This in turn contaminates the ocean, closes beaches, harms aquatic life and increases the risk of inland flooding by clogging gutters and catch basins. Urban runoff, propelled by rain and irrigation, carries pollutants through the storm drains and directly out into the ocean. Animal waste is a particularly harmful element of urban runoff because it contains bacteria that can make swimmers sick, and contains nutrients that can alter the delicate balance of our water’s ecosystem.
