Happy Independence Day India!!

theFundooGeek! wishing from USA :

Happy Independence Day - 2010, India!!!

The Independence Day of India is celebrated on August 15th to commemorate its independence from British rule and its birth as a sovereign nation on that day in 1947. On the stroke of midnight, a country came into life again as the British handed over the governance of India to the Indian leaders. The British government declared the country independent and left for their own shores.

It was on this historic date that Jawaharlal Nehru, the first prime Minister of India, unfurled the Indian tricolor on the ramparts the magnificent Red Fort, symbolically marking the end of the British colonial rule. This has become tradition where each and every Indian Prime Minister hoists the Indian Tricolor flag on the Red Fort on 15th August every year and delivers a nationally televised speech from its ramparts.

To our Indian patrons, best wishes on India's Independence Day from all of us @

Solutions To Stormwater Pollution

Source: Clean Water NJ:

Here are some really easy things that you can do every day to protect our water. Things that don't take any time and can easily become a habit. All we need to do is take some time to take care of our environment. Nothing out of the way, just pay attention to things that we consciously ignore and assume is someone else's problem to solve. However, if we do our bit, it will make a lot of difference to the world around you. Especially one of our most priceless resource - water. Plus, the biggest prize - you feel good, real good that you help the environment; I know I feel good every day as a result of my changed habits.

We owe this much to Mother Nature and our future generations!

A Guide To Healthy Habits For Cleaner Water Pollution on streets, parking lots, and lawns is washed by rain into storm drains, then directly to our drinking water supplies, and the ocean and lakes that our children play in. Fertilizer, oil, pesticides, detergents, pet waste, grass clippings – you name it, and it ends up in our water.

StormWater pollution is one of the greatest threats to clean and plentiful water, and that is why we are all doing something about it.

By sharing the responsibility and making small, easy changes in our daily lives, we can keep common pollutants out of stormwater. It all adds up to cleaner water, and it saves the high cost of cleaning up once it is dirty.

Limit your use of fertilizers and pesticides

  • Do a soil test to see if you need a fertilizer.
  • Do not apply fertilizers if heavy rain is predicted.
  • Look into alternatives for pesticides.
  • Maintain a small lawn and keep the rest of your property or yard in a natural state with trees and other native vegetation that requires little or no fertilizer.
  • If you use fertilizers and pesticides, follow the instructions on the label on how to correctly apply it.

Properly use and dispose of hazardous products

  • Hazardous products include some household or commercial cleaning products; lawn and garden care products; motor oil; antifreeze; and paints.
  • Do not pour any hazardous products down a storm drain because storm drains are usually connected to local water bodies and the water is not treated.
  • If you have hazardous products in your home or workplace, make sure that you store or dispose of them properly. Read the label for guidance.
  • Use natural or less toxic alternatives when possible.
  • Recycle used motor oil.
  • Contact your municipality, county, or facility management office for the location of hazardous waste disposal facilities.

Keep pollution out of storm drains

  • Municipalities and many other public agencies are required to mark certain storm drain inlets with messages reminding people that storm drains are connected to local water bodies.
  • Do not let sewage or other wastes flow into a stormwater system.

Clean up after your pet

  • Many municipalities and public agencies must enact and enforce local pet waste rules.
  • An example is requiring pet owners or their keepers to pick up and properly dispose of pet waste dropped on public or other people’s property.
  • Make sure that you know your town’s or agency’s requirements and comply with them. It is the law.
  • Remember to use newspaper, bags, or pooper scoopers to pick up pet waste.
  • Remember to dispose of the wrapped pet waste in the trash or unwrapped in a toilet.
  • Remember to never discard pet waste in a storm drain.

Do not feed wildlife

  • Do not feed wildlife, such as ducks and geese in public areas.
  • Many municipalities and other public agencies must enact and enforce a rule that prohibits wildlife feeding in these areas.

Do not litter

  • Place litter in trash receptacles.
  • Recycle! Recycle!! Recycle!!!
  • Participate in community clean-ups.

Dispose of yard waste properly

  • Keep leaves and grass out of storm drains.
  • If your municipality or agency has yard waste collection rules, follow them.
  • Use leaves and grass clippings as a resource for compost.
  • Use a mulching mower that recycles grass clippings into the lawn.
