Pet Waste Pollutes Our Waters – What You Can Do To Help Protect Our Water

Did you know that animal waste from pets can pollute our waters? When left on the ground, pet waste is washed by rain and melting snow and ice into storm drains that carry it to our rivers, lakes, the ocean and drinking water.

Animal waste contains a high concentration of nutrients as well as bacteria and disease-causing microorganisms that can cause problems.

Princeton pet owners are required to remove all feces deposited by such dog on public or private property and must dispose of same in a sanitary manner in accordance with section 6-5.2 of the Princeton Code.

Residents are reminded that all dogs must be accompanied by and under the control of a responsible person and the dog must be on a leash not to exceed 8 feet in length, 24 hours a day unless confined within its owner’s property. 

Dogs in parks shall be restrained by a leash not to exceed 16 feet.
