Storm Water

superhero1.jpgAs stormwater flows over driveways, lawns, and sidewalks, it picks up debris, chemicals, dirt, and other pollutants and can transport these pollutants to a lake, stream, river, wetland, or coastal water. Anything that enters a storm sewer system is discharged untreated into the waterbodies we use for swimming, fishing, and providing drinking water. Polluted runoff is the nation’s greatest threat to clean water. By practicing healthy household habits, homeowners can keep common pollutants like fertilizers, pesticides, pet waste, grass clippings, litter and automotive fluids off the ground and out of stormwater and be a CLEAN WATER ACTION HERO!
