Pet Waste

dog being walked

Dogs in Eden Prairie produce up to 4 tons of waste each day.

Unfortunately, pet waste left on the ground washes into storm drains and waterways, exposing humans, pets and wildlife to harmful bacteria and other contaminants.

While squirrels, geese and other wildlife also contribute to water pollution, these animals tend to spread out waste across the landscape, whereas dog waste tends to be concentrated in yards, pens and along sidewalks or paths. Cats usually bury their waste, so it does not get into waterways as easily.
