DRAIN PROTECTION & STORMWATER CONTROL
Stormwater pollution has become a major concern both locally and on a national level.
What is stormwater?
Stormwater is the rainfall that flows over our yards, streets, parking lots, and buildings and either enters the stormdrain system or runs directly into a lake or stream.
What is a stormdrain?
Stormdrains are the openings you see along curbs and in streets and parking lots. They carry away rainwater and transport it through the drainage system to nearby ponds and streams. Water and other debris that enter stormdrains do not go to a treatment facility.
How does stormwater get polluted?
As stormwater flows over our lawns, driveways and parking lots, it picks up fertilizers, oil, chemicals, grass clippings, litter, pet waste, and anything else in its path. The stormsewer system then transports these pollutants, now in the water, to local ponds and streams. Anything that goes into a stormdrain eventually ends up in our waters.
