Stormwater Runoff

Stormwater runoff is one of the leading causes of water pollution. This happens when rain flows off impervious surfaces into yards and streets. The water goes right to storm drains and streams - bringing pollution with it. 

Stormwater runoff is not cleaned at a treatment plant first like drinking water.
