Dog waste is raw sewage, NOT fertilizer. Harmful organisms from dog poop transmit readily to children and adults and can survive for months on the ground. Just one week of accumulated dog poop can host 700 BILLION bacteria. Mowing just spreads the contamination everywhere.

WATCH VIDEO: Is your yard incubating toxic waste?

water-department-visitSgt Poopers paid a visit to the City of Dallas Water Department — the government agency in charge of protecting water quality by in municipal creeks, streams and lakes.

Our purpose in visiting was to strengthen our partnership with the Water Department, who have already been very busy in helping to maintain clean waterways.

We briefed water officials on our community education efforts and exchanged ideas on better ways to improve awareness of dog waste as a non-source point pollutant. Run off from sprinklers and rain carry fecal matter from Dallas lawns and into storm drains which empty directly into creeks and waterways that feed into lakes and even the Trinity River. Storm drain water is not processed to remove pollutants, so it is important to limit dog waste since it directly contaminates the water with fecal matter.

There are approximately 1.2 million dogs in the Dallas area, which is like a city of half a million people using their backyards as a toilet. Yes, it seems the practices associated with the Dark Ages aren't so far back as we thought, but are alive and well right under our feet.

Obviously the popularity of dogs as pets, and the consequent high concentration of K9 population in urban areas has brought unforeseen consequences in terms of pollutants. Luckily it is a problem we can all do something about.

  • Mowing dog waste contaminates your entire yard with trillions of live bacteria.
  • Parasites, germs, bacteria, pathogens & viruses in dog waste are harmful to humans.
  • Fecal bacteria stick to the bottoms of shoes and transfer readily to clean floors.
  • Fecal organisms can infect children, adults and other animals.
  • Roundworms and hookworms deposited by infected animals can live in the soil for long periods of time and can be transmitted to humans.
  • Storm water carries pet waste and bacteria directly into waterways.
  • Animal waste depletes the oxygen in the water and kills fish.
  • DFW's 1.2 million dogs deposit 900,000 lbs of toxic waste on the ground each day.
