Please remember to clean up after your pet when out and about. Bring a plastic bag with you just in case, and make sure to dispose of the bag properly and not dump it on the street or on other people’s property. There are 11 dog waste stations throughout Lochmere next to the trails.
Pet owners are required per Town of Cary Ordinance to pick up their pet’s waste. Pet waste is not only unsightly it is also harmful to the environment. Pet waste can impact water quality through the excess nutrients and bacteria which can be washed into our streams during rain events. Contamination of streams can affect algae blooms and be harmful to people wading and playing in the stream. Picking up after your pet is the neighborly thing to do; it’s also the healthy thing for you to do, for you and the environment.
