Stormwater – Polluting Our Waterways
“Stormwater is water from rain or melting snow that does not soak into the ground. It flows from rooftops, over paved areas and bare soil, and through sloped lawns. As it flows, this stormwater runoff collects and transports the following pollutants: sediment, pet waste, pesticides, fertilizer, automobile fluids (oil, grease, gasoline, antifreeze), deicing products (road salt and fertilizers), grass clippings, leaves, and other yard waste, cigarette butts and other litter.” The Stormwater Resources sites below are designed for stormwater officials, developers, students, and homeowners in need of technical assistance on stormwater issues.
