Incorporated Elements

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.
