Good Housekeeping and Pollution Prevention focuses efforts on ensuring that Town of Collierville facilities and operations are managed in ways that will minimize contamination to stormwater discharges emanating from these facilities. Facilities may include, but are not limited to, Town owned or operated buildings, public works facilities, parks and recreation facilities, and infrastructure.
