What is Stormwater Runoff?

Stormwater runoff is when rain flows off impervious surfaces (streets, sidewalks, roofs, etc.) into storm drains, creeks, and streams - bringing pollution with it.

Our stormwater outreach and education program provides information on ways to prevent water pollution and why preserving our water resources is important!
