The City of Ham Lake is developing and implementing a public education program to distribute information to the community regarding the impacts of stormwater discharges on water bodies and the steps that the public can take to reduce pollutants in stormwater runoff.
The purpose of this information is to make Ham Lake residents and businesses aware of the hazards associated with illegal discharges and improper disposal of waste.
