When it rains, where does it go and what does it take with it? As stormwater flows over surfaces, it collects pollutants like soil, chemicals, bacteria, leaves and oil. Then carries these to surface water. Pollution in runoff is considered one of the main sources of water pollution.
Stormwater management focuses on keeping pollutants out of stormwater. Residents can reduce pollutants in stormwater by picking up after their pets, not littering, limiting the use of pesticides and fertilizers, and properly disposing of hazardous materials and yard waste.
Here are some tips to keep pollutants out of stormwater!
