Environmental Wellbeing reflects
our degree of awareness and appreciation of the critical
role the environment plays in our individual wellbeing; an
understanding that humans are part of the environment and not
separate from it; that all human activity impacts the environment
and can jeopardize the environment's ability to provide essential
services needed to sustain life.
The environment is the basic foundation of individual wellbeing.
Often referred to as natural capital, the environment functions and
interacts with human systems, social systems, and the built
environment. Environmental wellbeing is embedded within many of the
dimensions of the wellbeing wheel because of people's continual
direct interaction with their physical surroundings.
Environmental wellbeing can be maximized by accepting personal
responsibility for the conservation of our natural resources,
preservation of nature's beauty and insuring all ecosystem services

Keeping our Rivers Clean
Polluted stormwater can be a leading contaminant in our
rivers. To help keep our rivers clean, keep your vehicles
maintained so they do not leak fluids, and avoid washing your car
in the street or parking lot.
