Stormwater Management

As rain and snowmelt run off streets, lawns, farms, and construction sites, they pick up fertilizers, dirt, pesticides, oil and grease, and many other pollutants on their way to our streams, rivers and lakes. Stormwater runoff is the most common cause of water pollution. Because stormwater pollution is caused by so many different activities in so many places in our watershed, individual responsibility is the key to protecting our waters from this pollution source.

Clean Water Household Habits

Stormwater can flow into a storm drain or directly into a water body. Anything that enters a storm drain is discharged untreated into lakes, streams or rivers we use for swimming, fishing, and drinking water. By practicing clean water household habits, you can help keep common pollutants like pesticides, pet waste, and automotive fluids off the ground and out of stormwater to protect out waters.
